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.
Hi everyone, it feels as if I haven't posted in months and I was surprised to see that it was actually only a couple of days ago.
Well, we finally got some rain here in Ottawa so Friday was a drearly day... I am not complaining because we really needed some rain. So on Friday, I had a very lazy day, I did nothing, I decided that it was a reading day and I did not touch any of my stitching at all. So what did I read... I had borrowed a book from the local library entitled Silent Thunder by Iris Johansen and her son Roy Johansen and I read it, cover to cover and thoroughly enjoyed it! It is about a marine architect who has been given the opportunity to work on a decommissioned Russian nuclear submarine. and the plot thickens....
So the poppy is basically finished except for the beads, I don't have enough to do the project. I borrowed the pattern from my friend after she had finished hers so I have to order some beads. I also haven't done any of the green stitching that surrounds the poppy because the perforated paper is an overdyed light green so I am waiting to see if I have to do the green once the beads are in. So here is a picture as it stands right now. So I will work on some small ornaments or maybe start the angel that my friend wants me to stitch for her, not quite sure.... it will be a surprise for all of us. lol Until the next time, take care of yourselves, you are all very special people.
