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, at long last I have taken a picture of the angel that I am doing for my friend. The pattern is published by StitchWorld, designed by Linda Bird and entitled "Elegant Angels" and it contains 2 angels that can be done separately or together, one has a green drape and the other has a pink drape. They are both very pretty and I have been wanting to do them for a number of years. I am using DMC floss and the fabric is a white opalescent Belfast linen (28 count). I know the fabric looks blue but it really is a beautiful bright white which shimmers and sparkles. So far I have 3 shades of pink and the overdyed gold ribbon. The face, arm and legs are stitched over one while the rest is stitched over two. It is progressing quite nicely. Hugs to all, take care and have a great day/evening. Louise
