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, I have a couple of photos to share with you today. When I was going through all the magazines that I had, I found a couple of delightful designs that I wanted to stitch. It was a single colour design of a father pushing his son on a tricycle and the other one was a father swinging his daughter up in the air. I could just imagine the squeals of joy because I remember doing that with my nieces and nephews. The disigner is Carol Emmer and the designs are from the Just Cross Stitch magazine June 2008.
As well, I stitched a couple more stockings and the Lizzie-Kate Love design from her latest Christmas series.
Remember I told you that I had taken a couple of quilting courses, well, here is my perfect square. I love purple and when I saw the pink, I had to buy it to go with the purple and there is also a green fabric that has the same pattern design as the pink. Will let you know what I am going to do with them when I figure it out.
Thats all for now, have a wonderful day and until the next time, big hugs from me to you. Louise
Here they are, aren't they beautiful? I had so much fun doing the first one - it is part of my 31 day challenge that I thought I would do a couple more for the craft fair. This is all aida and floss from my stash. The designer is Kell Smurthwaite, Kincavel Krosses
She is a very talented lady. Thank you for these beautiful designs.
