Where Did Autumn Go?

It seems like just yesterday we were looking at the beautiful leaves on the trees.
Then overnight, they all fell off and into our yard.
I had thrown out my back on Friday
and Dave said no to me trying to help clean up the yard on Sunday
even though I was feeling a bit better...
(and I know better, I've got to admit he is just about always right!)

So here are some pictures of the big pile of leaves that he made for Chloe on Sunday.
She isn't walking yet, and was a bit unsure at first...
But as you can see by the smile on her face
(the "ham" face as Dave calls it)...
She loved it!

So for now, the trees are bare.

My garden has gone to its winter rest.

The birds & squirrels are cleaning out the feeders every day.

And I am working on new designs for my new infant apparel line

with my friend Kim from AspenWear.

The website is still being updated - it is getting an overhaul - very time consuming!

We're busy as ever!

Hope everything is well with you all!

Thanks for reading...

Marsha Neal Studio Apparel

I'm so excited to announce that my Marsha Neal Studio Apparel line is officially launched! I've got 4 designs: tree, barnicles, and 2 different line curl type spirals. There are currently about 15 scarf colors and 11 ink colors being tested to see which work best with my designs.
My friend Kim Love of AspenWear is printing these for me, and has some for sale through her Etsy Store. I will be adding some styles on my website shopping cart as soon as we get a bit more organized and pick what color scarves and which inks work out the best.
For now you can find a selection on Kim's Etsy page (AspenWear).
At Reed's Beads in Ambler, PA (Trunk Show Nov 6-8 - RIGHT NOW!!!).
And through my bead show tables at the upcoming shows listed on the right side bar.
Here is a picture of the scarves that are at Reed's Beads. Get there soon to grab yours ($22 each). Sheer Jersey material (like wearing a t-shirt around your neck), 93" long, 16" wide and unfinished edges that tend to curl nicely.

Here is a really cool picture that Kim took of her modeling the grass green scarf with the black tree.

I've got some designs in the works for some infant and toddler apparel with my designs. With a kid like Chloe, I'm so inspired to put her in really cool stuff!
