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.
Good morning wonderful people, it is a beautiful morning here and I thought I would share the latest project with you before I get busy and do some exciting chores like laundry and cleaning (ugh). When I was in Branson, I was talking with Emily (one of the wonderful ladies that I met there) about the Mill Hill bead kits, I was working on the Wizard and she was working on one of the Mardi Gras masks. To make a long story short.... she showed me the latest kits and of course I had to buy this one!! It is called A Stitch in Time and contains everything that a cross-stitcher would/could use, it even contains a variety of stitches. I am currently a little more than half way. Here is a picture of my progress on this one, I am hoping to have it finished before the end of the month.
Group hug to all of you, Louise
PS, the paper is a little curled but that will straighten out after it is finished, I usually put a heavy book on them or iron them.
