Hi Feather.  You already answered 'forgiveness' and got it right --- twice!   :thumb:

I'm not sure whose turn it is now but anyway your last one is hard.
All I can think of is robustious

It doesn't, bimbow! That was a different question. I think you've got it right. I wonder why that wasn't one of the choices in Thesaurus.

I think I've solved it: "filigree" is a noun but "ornamental" is an adjective. One cannot be a synonym for the other. Maybe the clues should be single words or phrases which are synonymous with the original word.

OK, here's another clue which I think will give it away.

Add an "s", and it becomes an item of clothing.
