As I said in an earlier blog post, Present For My Dear Boy (written in November 2013 to celebrate the birth of my grandson, Liam), children's patterns with names were often intended as gifts for a new baby. Joseph is my first grandchild who has a name that was popular in the 19th century, so I hope he likes children's patterns! Here are a few intended for a loved child named Joseph.
|Joseph Terrence (for his maternal grandfather Terry) born on March 12, 2014; 9 pounds two ounces, 21 inches|
|Joseph Rudolph born on June 26, 1917 ( he may have been about four month in this photo)|
