While that one may remain white and undecorated (that may be hard for me to do), I also bought a doll bed at the same yard sale which is destined for...I don't quite know yet, but not white. Marked at $3, it was a simply constructed box with a headboard and footboard with a cutout heart at each end. It spoke to me. It's American Girl size, and I envision it with a mattress and pillow, fitted and flat sheet and pillowcases, and patchwork quilt. When I was little, one of my favorite things was a doll bed that my grandfather made, and all the linens, ruffled pillowcases and pieced quilt that my grandmother (or was it my mother?) made to go with it. I still have all that stuff.

So this banner has been kicking around in my head for weeks, and today was the day to actually begin it. What you see here is, of course, not the finished product but just the basic shapes ironed on to the backing. With any luck at all, I'll finish it by the weekend. If you care to broaden your horizons and pronounce it, it's FAHL-cha. Much easier to pronounce than most Gaelic; I will never attempt to learn the language of my ancestors, I envision getting cramps in my tongue.
