Chandelier WIP and a Bunch of Other Finishes

I know it's been a while, but I've been busy with work and other life events.  So I have a bunch of finishes and a WIP.  First up, the Chandelier WIP.  Presently, all of the cross stitching is done!! All that's left is the back stitching and the beading. The beading is going to take FOREVER!!!

Now for finishes.  This first one I made for my one overly exuberant co-worker after her father passed away.

I made this next for a former co-worker for his birthday/going-back-to-college gift.  It's the logo of his favorite baseball team.

I made this one for a different former co-worker as a wedding gift.  It was stitched on ivory fabric with hunter green floss and a rose colored floss.  I messed up the date in this picture, but I have since fixed it to the correct year.

Then I participated in this years Sept/Oct Sprite Stitch mini swap.  I made this on 28-ct evenweave.  I only regret not doing more for this swap.  However, I am glad that the person who received it liked it.

My last finish for the night is a birthday gift for my BFF, who loves the more classic books and poetry, so I made this for her.  She also picked out the pattern when I visited her in July, so I thought it would make a nice birthday gift.  It's a little late, but that's because I had it custom framed and that took longer than it should have.  I wasn't able to get a picture of it framed.  I would stitch this again in a heartbeat if I had a reason to.

Now for patterns.  No particular theme this time, although, if I had to choose, I would say Halloween/Autumn.

That's all for now.  Happy Stitching!!
