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.
Following a morning engagement at London’s Olympic Park, the Duchess of Cambridge met up with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall for a joint visit to the Dulwich Picture Gallery in south London. Pupils from several local schools were also in attendance at the event, who were taking part in the Great Art Quest - “a programme that introduces youngsters to local galleries, professional artists and storytellers. A Clarence House spokesman said the idea for the joint event came from “a conversation between a father-in-law and daughter-in-law, they have a shared interest in art, art therapy and children.” Later, they made collage self-portraits - Catherine cut a heart into lace and also chose a leaf for her design. She told one of the children: “Yours is so much better. Look at that. That’s amazing.”
