Getting ahead of myself

This isn't the first time I've kept stitching and stitching without stopping to take a progress, and it probably won't be my last, either.  The little unicorn ornament is ready for the finisher!

The white was worked in encroaching Gobelin with two strands of Burmilana 3601 accented with gray shading and tent-stitched black eye.  I changed the green in its mane to pink with Vineyard Silk Classic Peppermint Pink.  The lavender portions of the mane are Vineyard Silk Classic Haze.  Both silk threads are shaded with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid.  The unicorn's horn was stitched in Kreinik #12 braid 002 and the sky was dotted with Kreinik #12 braid 001.

 Green Impressions in a satin stitch formed the sprig of holly and French knots of DMC cotton floss provided the berries.

It's darling. I hope there's a little girl somewhere who will get this for her holiday tree!
