Meet Sheri of The Country Willow
I love getting to visit The Country Willow and checking out her site and what she’s been up to lately. Sheri, the owner, is exceptionally talented, very knowledgeable, big-hearted, honest, and fun to talk too. She is always willing to share her knowledge with others, shares other crochet designer’s projects, and much more.
Tell me a little something about your personal life ~ kids, family, pets, etc.
I am the Mom to 6 children 2 biological and 4 step-children. I have 4 furbabies, 3 Chi’s and 1 Beagle. I love crafting and spending time with my grandson!
How long have you been crocheting?
I have been crocheting seriously for about 4 years. I was taught by my father at age 12. Didn’t care for it back then. I picked up a hook in 2011 and never looked back.
What are your favorite items to make?
I guess I really don’t have a favorite thing to crochet. I like to dabble in every category so I don’t limit myself.
How long have you been blogging? Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging in 2012 when I decided I wanted to design. I wanted to share my free patterns with everyone, so that they too could enjoy it.
What is your favorite thing about crocheting and/or blogging?
My favorite thing about crochet is that it is therapy for me. I have RA and Fibromyalgia so I need to keep myself and my hands limber.
What are your favorite yarns (brands or types to work with?
I love Vanna’s Choice. It is great to work with and I love the amount of choices I have for colors.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Well…it used to be my Mom. I lost her in 2014 and went through a dark period and didn’t crochet for a long time. I lost my motivation and inspiration when I lost her. I am working on coming back and it is a difficult task for me without my best friend.
What is your favorite item on your blog at the moment?
The Christmas Gumdrop Tutu. I just love this little dress.
What would be the one piece of advice you would give to a person setting up their own blog?
Be consistent and blog on what you know. Be happy doing it. Keep it fresh!
