Who Me?

Hello all, I’m Tammara, also known as Tammy. When Karin asked me to be a guest I was rather shocked, I’ve never thought I was very interesting, but here goes. I’m 48, the mother of three, grandmother of two. I currently live in a little town in northern Minnesota’s Itasca county.

The first snowfall of 2017, lovely at night but frigidly cold.
I have discovered that you absolutely cannot have too many fuzzy snugglies. We moved here in November of 2016 to be closer to my husband’s family who needed a bit more help. I work the night shift at Wal-Mart as a stocker. It’s a very physical job but lets me see all the new “toys” as we get them in. My collection of yarn and fabrics has not decreased at all since I started working there.

I crochet a bit, I’m still a novice after many years. I make simple things, scarves, small blankets, bookmarks and the like. I recently bought a set of knitting looms and am teaching myself to loom knit by way of YouTube and Pinterest.

A small selection of my yarn projects. I could make a nest of the larger box.
I color and draw, love to garden and cook and I enjoy woodworking and metal crafting. I occasionally make jewelry and wind chimes. I have in the past dabbled with making my own yarn on a drop spindle and woven a small tapestry on a simple lap loom. I have up-cycled thrift store clothing into quilts and simple clothing. I rarely if ever took pictures. I never really thought about it.

I research anything that strikes my interest and I collect old herbal remedy recipes. I write but don’t publish because I am rarely happy with with I have written. My family likes to say that I’m a bard, not a scribe because I can tell a story but not write it.

I just started a bullet journal to help me get myself lined out. I am probably one of the most disorganized people on the face of the earth. I have over a dozen projects in boxes scattered around the garage and basement. When Karin requested this blog, I realized how I many partial projects I have in progress and freaked. I now have a whole new section in the journal to remind me of what is yet to be completed.

I enjoy reading almost anything. Currently, I am reading through all of the stories on Rough Trade. I am also reading through Hellbells stories on AO3, https://archiveofourown.org/users/hellbells/pseuds/hellbells/bookmarks?page=3

after that, I’m now even sure where to go. I have a large collection of books on my shelves by a variety of authors in a variety of subjects. What I read changes from moment to moment.

That’s about all I have, I  hope no one was too badly bored.  I wish everyone a happy and peaceful Holiday season and a blessed New Year.

Take Care Everyone,

Tammy aka Tammara

One thought on “Who Me?

  1. thanks for being my guest today, Tammara. Always nice to know when someone comes away with something after doing a post 😉 I look forward to your future FO’s.
    I imagine work can be a dangerous place to be when new “toys” arrive 😉
