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.
When I started this post I was giggling to myself at the title but honestly that is what this one is about. I had stitched some Christmas tree ornaments (the design is part a tabletopper by Dutch Treat Designs) and finally got around to sewing them together and stuffing them! These little trees went with me to a variety of places - I worked on them in the airports, on the airplanes, waiting for my doctors appointments (of which I had way too many this past year). I hope you like them.
PS, they are done on an overdyed aida from my stash, DMC threads for the bows, Victoria Clayton silks for the trees and Rainbow Gallery's Petite Treasure Braid for the stars.
