But Still, Like Dust, I'll Rise

“You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies. You may tread me in the very dust, But still, like dust, I'll rise...
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise.
I rise."
- Maya Angelou

Greetings and Salutations, friends. My name is Frances and this blog is just a massive fangirl spaz. Doctor Who, Sherlock, Avengers, PotC, any and all actor-people involved in said shows, and much more miscellany.

Please, drop me a line in my askbox :D You know I love it.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

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.
