Hot Cowboy Potholders

A quick note from Lauren:

I am a wife and mother of 2 grown children. I love to sewing and have been doing it since 6th grade. I have a dressmaking and alterations business, and etsy gives me a chance to make what I want. I worked for Hershey foods for 18 years in the field sales force until 6 years ago when they had a reorganization and I was given an early retirement (really early LOL). That freed me up to spend more time sewing and devote more time to my business. My main shop has quilts, potholders , aprons, and some sterling silver jewelry. My newer shop currently has children's clothing, but I am hoping to add women's clothing as well, if I can ever find the time to get it made.

  4. Hi Lauren! Nice to see you in 'print'! Hershey's - did you get freebies? Yum!
    I love that lunch bag - it's really classy :)

  5. Nice feature, Lauren! Hope you've enjoyed your early retirement. You worked for Hershey's? I wonder if you got to eat all of the chocolate you wanted? Love that over-sized lunch bag.

  6. Yes, free chocolate, when we had meetings there was chocolate all over the table too. I used to give full sized candy bars out on halloween and I was the most popular house on the block. (free chocolate chips and peanut butter too)

  7. Oh I love the hot cowboy :) I would like him in my house.

  8. beautiful work by one talented lady!

  14. I found this easy and with delicious varieties. Last time I made it my husband came into the kitchen and said, “Oh GOOD!” There’s no higher praise than that. Have to try another delicious and popular recipe ideal for nearly any occasion –…Best of all it’s easy to prepare!
