Christmas Lights

The Call to Arms! - Twelve Drummers

It all started one evening at the beginning of October as, at long last, a bit of good summer weather was being enjoyed, rather late, but better then than none at all!

A phone call was received setting up a meeting with the designer/builders of the Christmas lights frames to discuss “the new one” which was already well under construction.

At the meeting, a copy of the complete frames layout was produced (picture 1) and which pieces (light elements) were to be animated was explained, along with ideas on how it should look, which was enlightening, but there would be other questions to come.
