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.

Christmas Scarf Project

Our Church began a Christmas Scarf Project after the storm Katrina. There were 100 people transported from New Orleans to West Virginia.  They needed scarves and hats.  Our generous knitters and crocheters answered the call.  We had more than a 100 items in a VERY short time, so we kept the extra to give away at Christmas.   No one thought this would become a yearly project.  Well it did:)  Since that time wonderful people in our church and friends have given hand knitted scarves, hats, purses and sweaters to the project.

Here are just a few samples of the beautiful gifts.
Each year our items help keep people of our area warm from the winter chill.
This year we were given 172 items along with donated yarn and money to buy yarn. One lady makes the cards to put with each item. 
I'll share some of the scarves in a day or so.
Blessings to my blogger friends.
