Parlour games and a halloweenie finish!

For those who are interested, the answer to the quiz I posted a few days ago are:

  1. Inimitable
  2. Vegetable
  3. Delectable
  4. Irritable
  5. Adaptable
  6. Marketable
  7. Comfortable
  8. Profitable
  9. Unsuitable
  10. Portable
  11. Unforgettable
  12. Indubitable
  13. Inevitable
  14. Disreputable
  15. Palatable
  16. Respectable
  17. Unbeatable
  18. Notable
  19. Tractable
  20. Illimitable
Did you get them right???  I think Illimitable (20) has disappeared completely from the english language

I'll post another word challenge next week.

What have I been stitching??  Not much in the way of sheep I'm afraid, but as I'm on leave from work for the next fortnight, that could change.  I am however planning to stitch and finish 2 more projects for Halloween before the event.  I did design and stitch a quick cushion for a surprise gift for my sister ......... turn away NOW Meg - you cannot see it until tomorrow night.... !!!!!



..................

stop looking Meg (or at least pretend you've not seen it before I hand it to you!)
I was reading SPINSTER SISTER's blog and she mentioned having a small plaque on her wall, with these very words....  That started me thinking, and this is the result.  I've stitched it on some more of that tea-dyed aida using some floss that came to hand.  I finished it into a mini cushion this afternoon - something she can stick her pins into perhaps...
I hope she likes it...

back in a few days - I'll try to remember to take photos of my holiday to share with you.

Great design, Bronny. If Meg doesn't seem appreciative enough, you can always take it back and have a giveaway, lol!
