Studio Update: July 26

At least 90% of my productivity can be attributed to my music. There's almost never a time in the studio when foundation-rattling tunes aren't being played- so instead of counting hours, I keep measure time throughout the day by songs, albums and playlists.

This noseband took about as long as Nevermind...

(Of course I only notice that it's twisted a little now...)

...And these stirrups took about 10,080 songs to get to me from England.

About halfway through Back in Black I noticed the happy accident that the Breyer Youth rider fits this particular saddle pretty decently!

Less convincing from the side, but considering the fact that 99% of my saddles in no way fit any kind of rider doll, this is a mini win.

This fuzzy girth only took about half the duration of Houses of the Holy to finish...

...But I fell into the old trap of "oh, I'm sure the pattern will fit!" and not measuring the girth on the horse before I lined and finished it... Way too wide on this saddle! Ugh!

So a replacement is on the to-do list for tomorrow. Well, now I have an extra tan girth if ever I need one. (Woo for looking on the bright side?)

A+ photography

The Fjord monster sucked up about Zeppelins I-IIII receiving his first few coats of paint/pastels, and still has a long way to go before he gets fitted for a harness and no less than THREE different bridles.

And I reckon it'll take both sides of Hello Goodbye/I am the Walrus to clean up this mess!

All I need to do tomorrow is finish that second girth, make the crownpiece and reins for the tan bridle, and figure out a pad and then this tan set will be off my desk and finally off to its new home. It'll feel so good to have that one done!


  1. There is not much betterusic out there to make tack to...except for maybe The Who or Of Monsters And Men :)

  2. I like how you keep time with songs - definitely something I do myself...

  3. Hee hee telling time with songs... I love it. :)
