Pixie dust was a result of experimenting with mitred square layouts.
Local Exmoor folklore says that pixies lived in a number of places on Exmoor, including Pixie Rock, Challacombe , Winsford Hill and Withypool. The Exmoor pixies are generally benign, but can be mischievous if they believe you deserve it. I would like to hope that if one day my Grandson Bert meets a pixie in his travels that he has been a good boy and not done anything the pixie might take offence to. In the meantime I have liberally sprinkled pixie dust over the whole blanket just in case.
