Completed Project Add: Bead Weaving - Hampton Logo

I'm sorry to say I've been in a slump after my last post.  There's just so much backstitching on it and so I kind of hit a mental block.  I need to work through it and I know I will, but in the meantime, I have a complete post:

This is the second of the three similar beading projects that I made for my family.

I believe this is the second one I designed and made.  I think by this time I was using Adobe Illustrator to create designs.  It was clunky for what I was doing, but it worked better than Excel.

This was a gift for my sister.  It's the logo of the company both she, and I, used to work for.  It's 2" (50mm) wide by 2.75" (73mm) tall, and I think this one looks pretty good as a mini tapestry, the shape of the logo just seems to work perfectly.  The mini bar that I wanted to use with this one wasn't the color I wanted it to be.  I probably used two or three different kinds of paint to change it from gold to silver before one of them finally stuck, literally.
