Cherry Bubble

"Isabella" for granddaughter Vivian Rose

“Isabella” for granddaughter Vivian Rose



Isabella is a sweet, simple little bubble pattern from My Childhood  Treasures.  When Judy Day saw this pattern on-line, she immediately e-mailed me with the link.  She knew I would love it for our granddaughter Vivian Rose.  It is a for sale downloadable PDF pattern so I had it in my hands moments after buying it.  Don’t you love these downloadable patterns?





My daughter Rebecca loved it exactly as shown on the pattern cover and wanted Vivian’s to look just like that.

Sweet Baby Jane (Vivian Rose) Bubble

Smocked Bubble “ADC”


Our beautiful grandson Alastair is 6 months old now. His family waited 43 weeks before demanding his appearance.
But now that he’s here, he seems pleased as punch to be sitting up in the precious little chair which was handmade for him by his Uncle Doug.

We all enjoy seeing him positioned differently from his younger pose–flat on his back, hands up, mouthing the words, “I  surrender!” (See previous posts, duck bubble  and Nivia diaper set.

The busier I get, the more I rely on the ready to smock garments.  Like her mother, my daughter Rebecca is very partial to monograms, so again I used Ellen McCarn’s monogram leaflet for the lettering.  The rest is just made up.
