Well, what a struggle but on the whole enjoyable. I didn't realise when I started out using bleach to show up the letters that my cat is addicted to it. So there she was, each time I finished one she would lick them all over! Yuk! So then I had to hide them. Sometimes I hid them so well I couldn't find them again.
I decided to make a Jacob's ladder to display the letters. It was extremely hard to get all the letters in photograph. Instead of ribbon I used plastic so that the letters could be seen. The ladder works perfectly with a nice click clack sound.
