God. Family. Crochet ;)
My name is Cherie Bernatt, creator of Crochet Mon Cherie which means "Crochet my darling"... and that is exactly what I love to do!
I have been crocheting since I was in middle school in the 1980's. My two teenagers seem to think the 80's is equivalent to the dark ages since it was so very long ago. But it feels like yesterday to me. I sat watching my mom crochet, sew, knit, and do all things crafty, absorbing it like a sponge and helping with various projects.
For me, the creative process has never stopped. And while I love all things crafty and artsy (like painting), I always come back to crocheting. It relaxes me, I love seeing the progress, and its easy to pick up and set down when needed. (Which comes in handy when you have 4 kids) :)
In a way, I have been designing projects for forever, since I've always had the habit of going off pattern and just doing my own thing. But it wasn't until 2016 that I started writing down what I was doing.
What you wont find=
Among my collection you wont find many traditional yarn projects like sweaters, hats, and afghans - after all, I live in Florida where it rarely gets below 70 degrees and is just too hot for typical crocheted items.
What you will find=
Instead, the Crochet Mon Cherie collection is almost all summer fashion and thread crochet. My hope is that these pages are filled with beautiful ideas that anyone (even people who don't think they like crochet) would love to wear.
And that's enough about me, :) now you can get back to your Crochet My Darling...
