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, I wanted to give you an update on the angel that I am stitching. It is coming along nicely. I will take a picture tomorrow so that you can all see her in all her glory. I was going to take a picture last week but I had started the face and neck which are stitched over one. And with her face partially done - she did not look very nice (trust me on this one). Well, I finally finished the face and neck yesterday so this morning I was up really early (7:30 - that's early for me on a Sunday morning) and was stitching by 8. Of course I had to make myself a BIG cup of tea (my mug holds 22 ounces) and then I was ready to stitch... my stitching mojo is back! yahoo. So the angel's head is finished (including the beads in her garland) and her right wing is done. So I am currently working on her sleeve which is done in 3 shades of pale yellows which is a lot of fun on white opalescent fabric! But it is beautiful. So until tomorrow, love you dearly and thank you for taking the time to read this blog. Louise
