A simple, subtle background

 This canvas came with a stitch guide, something I generally ignore.  I began by stitching the background in basketweave using 3 strands of DMC cotton floss 3747.  Lavender is one of the recipient's favorite colors.

The body of the unicorn was worked in a diagonal mosaic stitch with 2 strands of Burmilana 3601 Bright White, with shading provided by gray Burmilana.  So far, so good!
