".......but most importantly, thank you very, very much for your wonderful work on the tapestry:
it looks splendid and I am absolutely delighted with it. You have apparently performed miracles.

My friends finally arrived to help uncrate it today - and they too were both amazed by the transformation and enchanted by the restored item.
It will be hung according to your meticulous instructions tomorrow. "
