    Correct; phial & file.

    You still see "fayre" used in UK, but shoppe not so much!

    Note needlework
    If note is a noun: chit, memo, explanation, phrase, sentence
    If note is a verb: notice, observe, see, comment, listen

    Needlework: knitting, sewing, embroidery, netting, stitching, lace, craft, darning, mending

    Still no idea. 🤐
