Just delivered this labor of love to Sukhmani Home in NobHill.  Our apologies for the sideway view.  We promise we are better craftsman than computer techs.

Diamond tufting is restored.  The original horse hair was reworked and a new layer of cotton batting applied.

Today we'll be reconstructing the diamond tufting.  Lots of work ahead.
