Pym's Snowy Sunday


 
A cold, Winter's afternoon. Snow is on the ground.
Inside the workshop, where it is toasty and warm, Murgatroyd and Bean are busy stitching away at new designs and don't want to be disturbed. 
Pym the Peg, who lives on a shelf in the workshop, has been waiting patiently for a set of clothes to be sewn for him. He is daydreaming, desperate for new adventures, when...

"Come on Pym!" said the Human, Kathleen, "Let's leave them to it. Pull on one of those Pixie hats hanging on the garland next to the wood stove and use this piece of merino wool top as a scarf. Then hop in my coat pocket and we'll go for a walk along the winding 'Shire river. You never know what we might find!"

Pym didn't need to be asked twice. He didn't see lions, tigers and bears but he did see...


A bulbous-nosed snowman...
Snowy branches...

Snow drifts...
Pebbles for eyes...
    


Beast of the 'Shire tracks!
Crow's feet...


















A church spire...
A swan in flight...

















A forgotten Pixie hat on a plant skeleton

Where did your adventures take you today?
