    Dream Catchers

    or you can just wrap the thread round the bangle especially if with younger ones or you could use ribbon so you use less thread..

    Can my mum sign things off?

    I was told yes, but if someone else can do it that would be better, otherwise you could end up with half your book signed off my your mum without actually doing any of it.. not saying anyone would do that, but it is a possibility! but with mine my mum signed off the Go training bit as she went...
