Now Lord Baden Powell's founding principle that Scouts should learn "to know the right thing to do at the right moment" is to be brought into the country's new school curriculum. From now on, skills developed in the Scouts will be recognised as part of a wider leadership qualification developed by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). The move – part of a drive under the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) to ensure wider achievements of pupils are recognised – has already been piloted at Armadale Academy, in West Lothian.

Hmm, they are all hand cast resin needles I made, the smaller ones are size 10 and 1/2, and 7 and 1/2 inches long.The jumbo needles are size 19s, and 11 inches long. then ends are either polymer clay or buttons, and the needles are embedded with yarn, glitter, gold leaf, mica powder, and resin dye, but not all in the same pairs! Okay, quick and dirty pics and instructions, since I have to try to finish while Amelia naps!
