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 again, tis me. Just thought I would show you a couple of things. While I was doing some cleaning (ugh) the other day, I found this OLD magazine that we have had since 1951!! It's older than me. lol It is entitled Home Notes and I believe it is British, the advertisements have monetary values using the letter "d" which my Dad said was for pennies. So if you know anything about this magazine, please leave me a comment. Thanks.
The other photo is of a backing for a compact mirror that I did in 2003 and when I found it the other day, I decided that it was about time that I actually put it in its case! So I laced it together and popped it in - only to realize that it is not centered!! OOPS, well folks, it is going to stay that way! It was designed by Eva Rosenstand and it is entitled Bilberry Garland, it came as a complete kit with the floss, aida cloth and the mirror compact and little pouch.
Until the next time, take care, love you dearly. Louise
