Well I have nothing against pulling hairs from the tip of a sable's 
arse (tail actually) if it makes a person feel more artistically 
authentic.  But why bother if you've done it before?  

Seems to me the time spent finding a sable and getting it in the mood 
to let you do that near its arse could be better spent painting, 
unless a person wants to be a sable hair brushmaker.

In this case, the metaphor is more akin to learning a new way to make 
a loom so you'll be able to weave some canvas to paint on once you 
finish spinning the cotton into thread.  

Yeah, I'm done with scheming
