Sarah is our hostess for the Saturday Mix challenge. You can find out more and join in here
The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our homophone sets this week are:
canvas – rough cloth
canvass – to examine thoroughly
born – brought to life
borne – past participle of bear
bourn – a small stream or boundary

She may have been born into poverty, but she had a quiet dignity and poise.
