Lion-hearted pony

What a good week so far. 

One of the Shetland ponies, jumping his little heart out. I'm taking him as my inspiration for the next month! What a hero.

DIY on Monday, loads of corsetmaking progress on Tuesday, photos for stables yesterday, and another productive studio day today. I shall confess though, by the time I was walking home today I had lost a touch of my chill! I've done a rough To Do schedule for the first three weeks of November (ie: our remaining studio time before I hand back the keys) and it's looking pretty hardcore. It made my self-belief rather waver! Feeble feelings. 

But... step by step. Tomorrow I will either crack on with more sewing or try to get these shelves finished on the boat. Both are important and both are easier with company and an extra pair of hands... Alas, will be on my todd*! You know, I might make a start tonight, sort out the boat so that the shelves are ready for work straight away. 

Yeah, that sounds like a plan. Right, cutting this entry short, chat later!  

 

 

*Apparently, being "on your todd" is being "out on your own" or rather "out on your Todd Sloan." Todd Sloan being the American jockey who basically invented the short-stirrups and standing posture which let the thoroughbreds run faster and let him win so often. He was on his own, because he was out at the front. And though I am not competitive in that way, I am going to use that as a way of framing tomorrow's solitude as a productive one, rather than a relaxing one.
