Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Delia is an amazingly hard worker and she and her daughter Nancy made this baby quilt called Cowgirl Up. There is never a time I don't see her with a needle, thread and hexagon in her hand. She has taken full advantage of the opportunity to make money from home. Delia is one of the few of our makers that was able to keep her home in the slums after the threats of the gangs. She lives right off of the river in the Pedregal bordo. She cooks and cleans river side every day when she is not sewing hexis.
Delia is the mother of one boy and one girl. Both of her children are grown but both have given her some grandchildren to enjoy. Sadly, Delia is suffering from some health issues with tumors but she is so grateful for her association with One Common Thread so we can make sure she gets the medical tests and attention she needs.
