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

Today is the forth week teaching a basic knitting class at our church.  Three ladies began the exciting adventure and today we had seven ladies all eager to show their work and learn new things.
WOW!  When one of the church ladies ask me to teach some basic knitting techniques, I jumped at the chance to "teach" something I know.  In my next post I will share how this Christmas Scarf Project can into being, for today I just want to show some of the items these fabulous ladies have donated.
Please come share in this ongoing journey of retirement with me.  I will visit with you if you leave me a message.


  1. Janet, I love the idea of your Christmas scarf project! We have a small knitting group at our church and have been looking for ways to expand by teaching and doing. Can't wait to hear more! ~Terri

    1. Terri, there is so much to share. God has given us this ministry. Yesterday, the 6-8 grade girls at the church school embellished 25 scarves with fringe and flowers. I will be posting. The scarves will go to the local home for girls ages 10-18 who are abandoned, homeless, etc. Amazing.
