While working on the website, I'm not sure how to categorize tidbits such as this dating advice from Ernest:

I'm currently trying to track down more info about a production these two were supposedly in together in 1909; "Old Heidelberg" in which Eva was the leading lady and Ernest was an extra (role "Student").  The earliest I had previously found them together was 1912.



You just can't have too much Rebecca and Horace Femm.  Too much might be fatal.

More incremental progress on this slow project - a 3D print of the digital scan of the original clay sculpture:

Love the delicate palette of the ballerinni!  Smiley

Here are the mini and micro ninnis I received from cabaute; a fabulous Wolpertinger and a tiny owl:



Owl needs his own close-up.  Look at the stubbular wings!  Cheesy



Thank you cabaute, I love them both!   Kiss

Just don't know...it's been nearly impossible to find any information about his private self, and accounts of his public self vary tremendously.  One of his best friends in the early days was the composer and pianist Percy Grainger, himself an eccentric, whose correspondence has been gathered into a book which I hope to obtain through interlibrary loan.  The volume is too expensive to purchase.  He corresponded a great deal with Ernest, so I hope to be able to glean something from at least a one-sided conversation.

Meanwhile our "interesting" couple:



"The wedding of Mr Ernest Thesiger, youngest son of Sir Edward Thesiger, K.C.B, and a kinsman of the Viceroy of India, with Miss Janette Ranken, daughter of the late Mr R.B. Ranken, of Edinburgh, was arranged to take place on May 29.  Mr Thesiger is a well-known and clever actor."

From The Sketch magazine, May 30, 1917

Research Project Name:  Masquerade
Team: Wordy!
Bonus Points: none 
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=437698.0

Brief Description: This sure seemed to take forever!  But I learned a lot.  I learned to interpret a design in petit point, and to stick with what is for me a difficult technique of stitchery.  The petit point is worked on black plastic window screen, with the image behind worked in my own style on cotton.  This design was inspired by the life and work of Ernest Thesiger, whose 136th birthday is today.

 This project was a huge challenge.  I learned to interpret a design in petit point, and to stick with what is for me a difficult technique of stitchery.  The petit point is worked on black plastic window screen, with the image behind worked in my own style on cotton.  This design was inspired by the life and work of Ernest Thesiger, whose 136th birthday is today. It is based on one of his party costumes, from 1905.

I went as Death, in black draperies, with a skull-mask wreathed in scarlet poppies."

Ok, Nerds, it's time to put down the embroidery, dress up - and Party!  It's Ernest's 136th birthday today!

I looked hard for new dress up pictures but have had no luck, so we'll have to settle for this old thing:

Bonus Points:  none
Project Name:  Thirty-two webpage designs
Project Link:
Brief Description: Its been difficult for me to view this as a craft, because its all done on the computer, but it does involve manipulating images and placing text attractively on a page.  Here are 32 pages Ive designed for the website Im creating - ernestthesiger.org - yes, Im that big of a nerd; its what I spend most of my spare time on these days.   Roll Eyes These  designs are preliminary layouts that dont include background or additional graphics, which might be a future Nerdalong project.
