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 there, yes another finish for me... another happy dance... what can I say... actually I thought I would never get this little guy finished. It is about 5 inches high and 3 wide, but I have to admit, towards the end, the needle was flying. The designer is Charlotte's Collectibles and this pattern booklet also contains the designs for a Santa holding a basketball, a soccer ball, a baseball and glove, and a football. The fabric is an overdyed aida from my stash as well as the DMC threads, I did use a Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid for the cuffs and the hat's brim. I think it looks smashing. Hugs and kisses to all and once again, thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Louise
