Pixie Dust...


Today I am going to work on my block for the Pixie Dust project (?) Vickie over at Bumblebeans sent out some pink and green fabrics for each of us to make a block. At first I was going to applique but after gazing at the fabric for awhile I decided to piece a basket. (baskets are one of my favorite blocks....)

The fabrics remind me of this little statue I brought back from England....
I did applique last night and made one of the blocks from the Grandmother's quilt. Nothing like appliqueing a pitcher of lemonade on a hot day....

Two more blocks are kitted up. I need to dig in the sewing room for my applique thread. I used what was on hand for the first block and am not thrilled. So excavating I go....

Speaking of excavating - have you seen the U.S. version of Time Team? It is a PBS show that follows a team of archeologists and historians that go to a site and help the local folks using lots of high tech gadgets. (For you UK folks I know this is a take-off of the one done it by BBC which I loved to watch while I was there!)

Now back to my own excavation while Macbeth takes his sunspot nap....
