Besides being a symbol of good luck, the unicorn has a special significance in our family. It seems you can find a Halloween costume of almost anything for fairly little people! And subsequently the unicorn provided the theme for Baby Unicorn's first birthday party. So what better canvas could there be for me to stitch for a Christmas tree?!
This is a design by Rebecca Wood, one of my favorite NP people. It's four inches wide, so should stitch up fairly quickly.

I changed out the gold with which Big Ben was painted for more stone-like colors. I would expect a British company like Kirk & Bradley to be proud of such an icon, but one thing Big Ben isn't is metallic gold! After googling the telephone booth, I changed it a little, too, but otherwise kept to the original design as painted.

On this Kirk & Bradley travel round, I used Silk Lame Braid for 18 ct. in basketweave for the background. It's a neutral color but with a hint of twinkle.
The cap at the top of the ornament was worked in a woven stitch with Kreinik #12 braid 002.
