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.
This is so incredibly precious, this actually makes me tear up with happiness!
The season 2 finale of the (My) Immortal webseries left me inspired to draw Hermione and Enoby in a post-transformation-magical-girl type pose….Dare I say, I think it’s finally finished. Some minor things I may fix later….
I’m going to take an indefinite break from Tumblr. I love this website to pieces, but ultimately, it has been affecting my performance at school, my relationship with my irl friends, not to mention that ever since I have gotten it, I have stopped doing the things I used to do a lot during my leisure time significantly, like drawing and writing. I started using this website at a time when I was very sad, and I got hooked on it because it helped dull out those feelings for a little while. But with time I’ve stopped using it because it makes me happy and I remain hooked because I feel like I have to or else I’ll feel worse than I already feel or I’ll let my followers down, or loose followers or just get bored. I don’t want to feel like I need to be on this website every time I’m not anymore.
