Jaxon was diagnosed with Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP) 5 days after his second birthday (Feb 2011). His mother told me that Jaxon is the seventh (7th) child in Canada to be diagnosed with this rare disease.
I am his great-aunt Louise and I come up with the idea of this blog to keep people informed, and to use my passion for stitching to raise money for the FOP organizations.
Hello lovely people, yes I know 2 posts in one day... oh my goodness. Well, I just have to share with you some of the goodies that I bought in Branson at Cecilia's Samplers. What a lovely store and the people were so friendly, I will definitely be going back there next year! I had to buy some new patterns of humbugs, four of them are by Faby Reilly Designs (a new designer for me) but they are so pretty that I can't wait to start stitching them. I bought the Christmas rose, the snowflake, the mistletoe and the poinsettia. Aren't they gorgeous.
Of course, I bought some floss and of course some fabric, some lovely opalescent fabric and some overdyed fabrics.
And we can never have enough patterns, right, I won't bore you with all of the patterns, just some of the cuter ones. Check out the one with the frog, I think that I will have to stitch him first, he is just too cute!!
That's it for now, dear friends, I will post the finished Wizard tomorrow, I need some sunshine for a better picture, the current one I have does not do it justice.
