Welcome to the Enchanted Land of
Pixies
green line


Pixies are the fun-loving, mischief-makers of the fairy realm.  They can stand as small as a human thumb or as tall as a human toddler, and any heighth inbetween.  Pxies prefer to live in the countryside and are often responsible for the spilled pail of milk and the strange commotion in the hen house during the wee hours of the night.  They are known to be quite fond of critters and think snails make wonderful pets!

Kyndal Wishley, the Toymaker
applique pattern in 2 sizes
$7.95
$5.00 on sale


Kyndal Wishley thinks her job is a joy,
Matching just the right toy with each girl and boy.
Perhaps a floating train that doesn’t mess up the floor,
Or a puzzle a child can walk through like a door?
Whatever it is a child wants most with his heart,
Kyndal designs a toy to match with her magical art.

Here's Rosemary's version.

Trev the Tailor has been commissioned to design new robes for the honorary pixie King and Queen.  He loves working with fabrics and threads and can’t wait to start playing with the finest , silkiest, softest, most exquisite fabrics in all the land, but first he has to figure out how to put the mannikin together.

Oh dear!  It's time to dress for the party at the Haunted Apple Pailion and Autumn just can't decide which outfit to wear!  The oak leaf oufit she's wearing is cute and sassy, but the colors are so drab.  The maple leaf costume is colorful, but so hard to sit in.  Hmm, maybe the witch outfit or the princess outfit would be better choices?

Someone is occupying the Piddle Pot and taking way too long!  Little Beatrice Emma is doing her best to dance the urge away.  Pepe decided to take matters into his own hands and seek relief by doing a bit of target practicing.

Trixie
Doodlehopper

Trixie loves her job working at the Deep Dish Café where the staff gets to wear period costumes as their uniforms.  Trixie’s favorite “uniform” is her poodle skirt from the fifties.  Although the saddle shoes are a bit uncomfortable for a pixie (bare feet are more to their liking), Trixie knows they are a “must” for the outfit.

Ricotta Milkthistle, the Cheese-Maker
wee house
The local cheese-maker extraordinaire, Ricotta Milkthistle, loves market day when she sets out her favorite cheeses in the Cheese Pavilion.  Watching customers taste her delicious wares and seeing their satisfied smiles of pleasure is all the reward Ricotta needs, although the income she earns does come in handy at home.

The Cheesemaker's Assistants
Ricotta’s children, Fontina and Colby Jack, are her best assistants.  They taste every cheese she makes to make sure it’s of the highest quality before being sold.  And on market day, they help her set everything up just right for the customers.  Look how wonderful Fontina is at teaching the ropes to little Colby Jack!

Dr. Brightfeather has been called out to the examining nest to check on Merry Robin’s egg.  The other eggs hatched almost a week ago, but this one doesn’t even have a crack yet so Mrs. Robin is quite concerned.

The pixies who dwell in the Pixie Pavilions created by Margo Rose are of the thumb-size varitey.  Larger pixies, while too big to live in such wee houses, have been seen playing with the pavilions and decorating them much like human children playing with dollhouses.

big pixies
the big pixies who play with Rosemary's Magic Shoppe


Big pixies can be placed in the background behind the houses where they will appear to be larger in scale.  I'd probably use 15" or 16" background blocks (instead of 14") if I chose to make the big pixies.  This would give me more room to play with the pixies.  When finished, I'd need to adjust the border design to fit.  However, since I live in a tiny apartment and probably couldn't even lift a quilt that had all of Margo's houses in it, I lean more toward using our designs to make smaller items like wall quilts, pillows and tote bags.  For this design, I'd start with a 20" background so I'd have more room to put some distance bewtween Maurice, who's looking for the rabbits, and Monique who has already found the rabbits.  This would make a delightful wall quilt for child's room, especially if it was liberally sprinkled with pixie dust!


magic shoppe
In this photo, Rosemary placed everything on a 16" background block.  The extra room is just enough to position the big size pixies a few inches below the house, making it look like the pixies are in the foreground and the Magic Shoppe is in the background.  With this placement, the big size pixies do look as if they could live in the wee house behind them.
(Lol, looking at the snowy roof, I'm thinking Monique needs to run inside and grab her coat!  Perhaps Maurice will lend her his cape.)
