Handmade baby quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras


Description
Ever After is a gorgeous stripe quilt in red.  This beauty was made by our single mother Mirna. She has written a little about herself to tell you a little about her background.  

"Hello, good afternoon, blessings, my name is Mirna.  I lived in Valle Maugalena, La Jigua Copan, Honduras. When I was five-years-old, my mother died and my grandparents raised me. Twenty years later, my grandparents died, and then I worked with my godmother at home and I studied with the director of the Morazan school.

I attended until the fifth grade at that school. After I turned fourteen-years-old, I came to Copan. I lived there with my husband for 17 years and I had three children and I had them in the Santa de Copan. I had to separate from my husband because of problems... and he kept my children.

Then I came to San Pedro Sula and worked for two years and I fell in love again. I'm with my partner and I live very happily with my partner.  I have beautiful daughter with my partner.  And I came to live here at the Bordo.

My friend Yeymi lives on the same land where we live, and she sews too. I want to thank God, and I thank you. You give us the opportunity to work.... I feel happy working.  That is all.  Oh sorry I couldn't write very well. And may God bless you always.  😘😘😘😘"
