Welcome to DreamChallenge

Having a dream to share my knitting creations, cooking adventures and caregiving stories with others is now a reality. I bet you know someone right now who is at home taking care of someone they love. A phone call, e-mail, note card or some food would all be appreciated. Sometimes an offer to stand in for that person is a wonderful gift. Think about getting a hair cut, what if there is no time or person to sit with your loved one? What can you do to help someone else, or if you are that caregiver, how can you get people to understand you would like to see them or have their help? Knitting helps me stay calm. Knitting helps my blood pressure stay normal. What helps you? Cooking is an adventure for me. My husband is a dedicated 'clean-up' person. Join us on this part of our life's journey.

Choosing to send out cards is one way I stay in touch with others. I address cards on Sunday and my husband puts them in the mail on Monday. There is always someone who needs a card.

After several months of blogging there is a reality that lots of people really enjoy this activity. Positively delightful people, living life to the best of their ability. There is such fun in hearing from others who have ideas, stories, crafts all to share with those who choose to read. Thank you my new friends in this unknown world/way of communicating.

Mistake Turn Beautiful

Starting a poncho last Saturday was an exciting adventure for someone who loves to knit.  Having never made a poncho before, it was a day or so before realizing "there is something wrong".  The poncho for my friend's granddaughter had turned into something large and beautiful and NOT a poncho but a beautiful "shawlette".  Little did I know that Karen at http://karenlcase.blogspot.com/2010/02/lucky-me.html  discovered this little article of clothing before me.  She has one for herself and it is totally beautiful.  My little mistake has turned into a lovely gift for my friend's granddaughter.  Thanks Karen for giving it a name.  Mine will be a one of a kind since there is no way to figure how it became a shawlette from a poncho pattern.  Thank You
