The following clues form a word chain. The last three letters of one word or phrase form the first three letters of the next word, and the list wraps round from the last word to the first. Mostly straightforward with the odd one needing the Stitchionary, but there may be one or two hyphenated words or short phrases in there, and remember it was compiled by a Brit. Quite a few there, so feel free to grab two or three smile

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.

Well under 24 hours! praise No Mr Nice guy from now on - the old and tattered Stitchman dictionary will come into play. (The dictionary's old and tattered, not Stitchman. Or is it the other way round?)

Me and Mrs Worrier have been experimenting in the greenhouse, Lex...
