Miss Muffet

It can be amazing what one finds when going through old papers and so on. I am completely useless at drawing and rarely attempt anything which vaguely requires an artistic hand - like writing my name! However I came across a sketch I'd drawn (presumably copied knowing me) back in the early 1960s and it amused me so I thought I'd share it:

I assume that my warped sense of humour was thinking of the following nursery rhyme at the time:

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey,
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away
(or, in this case, didn't!)
