Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Glenda is a single mother of one son and a very hard worker. She supports herself and was able to build a new home for herself. She is very proud of her efforts and we are too. her desire is to purchase a large refrigerator so she can open a little "tienda" from her home. She is excited for this prospect even though she has very little.
In the midst of her challenges, Glenda finds solace and a newfound sense of hope through sewing. She had the opportunity to learn this skill from another Maker, and it has become a therapeutic outlet in her life. Sewing provides her with a way to momentarily set aside her problems and focus on creating beautiful projects. This newfound passion not only brings light to her life but also serves as a means of supporting herself and funding her ongoing treatments for her cancer.
Despite all these hardships, Glenda's strength and resilience shine through. She has channeled her energy into creating a diamond designed hexagon quilt. Each stitch represents her determination to overcome obstacles and find joy amidst adversity. Through her creative pursuits and unwavering spirit, Glenda finds the strength to face each day with courage and hope, proving that even in the face of profound challenges, the human spirit can prevail.
