Making Progress - Then Life Gets in the Way

So I had been making good progress on my Golden Tapestry.  Seems like that was all I was focusing on.  I finished the main design (Yay!), and started working on the borders....

Early in March, we noticed our water had a brown tint to it. We have a private water well for our home. When the water didn't clear and became worse, we called in for repairs. Long story short, our well has collapsed and we needed to drill a whole new one.  Apparently it is because of the limestone geology we happen to live on.  That, plus I think the small earthquake we had must have damaged our well.  To give you an idea of how bad it was at times, this is what came out of the bathroom sink one morning. Just awful. 😳 

   Had to go through county approval, permits and inspections and get drilling rigs in our yard.


Many weeks and headaches later, we have a new and improved well in operation and we have crystal clear water again.
So nice to have clean clear water again. 

Thankful for the kindness of family, friends and neighbors who allowed our family to do laundry and showers while we worked through the setbacks and delays along the way. Also thankful for bottled water that is readily available now. With our new well in operation, last night for the first time, we ate dinner using real plates and utensils that can be washed instead of disposable paper plates and plastic cutlery. What a treat!

So this is where my Golden Tapestry has stayed this spring.  Have done some smaller projects during our water crisis. Hope to get back to my tapestry soon.
 
Happy Stitching.
