Aw, thank you!  Kiss  I'm sort of moving into the toy market as it is, with the little slotcar drivers I'm making with my husband, but I don't get paid.   Cheesy

I'm unemployed most of the time these days (profession disappearing like buggy whips) and I have no trouble filling my "leisure"!  It's the $$ that's missing.   Tongue

I'm working on the pattern for something rather ambitious.  Not much of a chance I can finish it this month.  Tongue

You sure did, suereal!  Some neat people have contacted me through the site - a couple people who are writing books about Ernest, and someone whose grandmother was the nanny for one of Ernest's brother's kids!   Cheesy 
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: What's your OBSESSION Swap GALLERY on: November 21, 2015 07:51:54 AM
I received from Wavelight.  She chose my obsession with the novel "Titus Groan" by Mervyn Peake and my favorite character, Doctor Prunesquallor and made this wall art of some of my favorite scenes from the book and a painting after a sketch by Peake:

She also chose my obsession with my cats, and made these tiny resin portraits of all five!

Thank you Wavelight!   Cheesy

I'm waiting for a reply from the owner of the painting, the wife of the son of Hilda Moore, whom I've asked if she has any additional information about the painting.  Unfortunately Hilda died when her son was only five, so, he probably barely remembered his mom, and certainly would not have known any stories about her friendship with Ernest.  But possibly there are some notes or letters or something which might establish when the painting was made and given.  Hilda and her sister Eva were some of the few friends at Ernest and Janette's wedding.

Edited to add:  I receive a lovely email from Mrs. Fairman; turns out her husband worked on a TV program in which Ernest appeared, and they talked together about Hilda.  Ernest remembered Hilda's son when he was a toddler. 

No definite date for the painting can be established because Ernest knew Hilda for a long time.
