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 everyone, I know I promised you a picture earlier on but the sun was not too co-operative. I took a couple of pictures today and they really don't do it justice. This was done on perforated paper and is a kit by Mill Hill. I just happen to love this guy, he called to something within me. I showed the finished product to a friend of mine on Sunday and she thought it was absolutely gorgeous. The beads really do make the Wizard, the various colours of beads complement and contrast the threads. I think it is stunning but then again, I might be a little biased!
While I was waiting for the sun to shine, I was working on other projects. I did a couple of Lizzie Kate's - the BFF and LOL. I was searching for this pattern after my operation and I just could not find it - I knew I had it but didn't know where I had put it - I really hate that (don't you?). So while in Branson, I was checking the half price table (it's really a bathtub) and there it was... so I had to buy it! I found some beautiful overdyed aida - reminds me of clouds in a beautiful blue sky.
And here is an update on my coffee tabletopper, this is the second side that I have finished, am now working on the third side.
That's all for now.
PS, I just noticed that the tabletopper appears to have some waves in it, sorry that is my poor picture taking! Will have to do better next time!
