Trying not to make rude words.

If a rude word is in the OED you can use it.

I think there is only one - and that's just mildy rude; I'm pretty sure I saw it several times on the old forum with no comments or moderation needed.

Thanks Imi, no she is now my main machine, purchased a few weeks ago.  I made the blouse I posted over on Survivors with it as a trial.  It's a 201-2 (potted motor) and runs like a dream.  I bought it to replace one that my ex hubby dropped down the stairs  :D  Keeping my others for the decorative and zigzag stitches.
Willing but not always able :)

This is like my worst nightmare. I am so bad at Countdown. I have an octochamp in the family, they must be so disappointed.

Come on girls - and boys.  Tomorrow is the last day so start posting your numbers.

I've just realised that I'm out all day tomorrow so the deadline has been extended to 6:00pm.

So far I have reached over 65 but might have repeated some on the list I am making!   Dipping in every now and then too.  On the joys of being retired! 

Loving the challenge ( but should I be sewing instead?)

Success might well be the word Lowena! If you have 85 I think I will admit defeat before even starting - well done.

You are both finding a lot more than I can. 

I do hope they are all legit English words and look forward to seeing them all.

I didn't say in the rules but you can only use each letter once - the same as with the previously mentioned newspaper word wheels.

I have 32 so far. It's important in a persons life to come last at times. It builds character you know!
