Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
(front view) CROCHETED Zelda Twilight Princess. my daughter made!!!! 95% of it she stitched all by herself—no pattern. What’s so great is her many school mates seeing her crocheting at school and in between classes!!! AGAIN, so VERY, VERY PROUD!Such awesome work!
rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying
Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.
So I usually get nothing for Christmas, just money. But this year my father surprised me with this beautiful carving that he made of the arm on the cover of Sawdust
