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 am feeling much better and as promised here are a couple of pictures of the quilt patterns and fabrics. I love houses and cabins in the woods, I think it is the serenity of the scene that calls to me, I have included all the fabics in this picture that will be used with the pattern. The backing fabric is the birch trees. Along with these fabrics, I bought some beautiful batiks which I want to use in The Curtesy. This designer is the lady that I met in the store and she kindly gave me permission to use the finished project for charity. I am always amazed and humbled by the generosity of these designers who work so hard on their designs yet do not hesitate to give their permissions. A big thank you to all of you and you know who you are!! I can't wait to get started sewing. The fabrics in the stores are so gorgeous and fun, check out the lizard.... he reminded me of the geckos I saw in Barbadoes and the bright vibrant batiks are simply amazing. And a little surprise for you, I finished the background of the Poppy and I have inserted it into the Sudberry House 5x5 Square box. I think it looks quite nice. Well folks, time to get some stitching done, I am working on the Is It Too Late ornament. Take care of yourselves and as always thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Hugs, Louise
