Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Jocelin with the help of her 15 year old daughter Nataly made this finished quilt called Picnic In the Park. These two are such amazing people and very special here at One Common Thread. Jocelin is the mother of 7 but tragically lost her youngest child, Oliver at 18 months old.
Before that Jocelin and Nataly along with the rest of their large family had to be relocated when the gang in their slum threatened to kill them and steal Nataly. They fled in the middle of the night and had to find refuge in the country. Since then their country home has flooded during hurricanes Eta and Iota in November 2020. Life has not been easy for them but Nataly continues her education attending school on Saturdays and helping her mother and sewing during the week.
