Hi, I am Marie Flint from Danvers, Massachusetts. I have been sewing and quilting for many years. I felt that a couple of wall hangings were appropriate for the season. I wanted to share these wall hangings with you, not because they are particularly difficult to construct but because I used them as my canvas to use mini lights to add a little extra flair. The first is a scene of Santa riding his sleigh with all his reindeer over a town on Christmas eve. The town and Santa was an iron on fabric stencil. The second piece is a panel of a little country town. I made eyelets in the fabric to be able to feed the mini lights. Then I glued black rubber O rings to secure the lights to the fabric. The lights turn off and on at will with a little switch on the back of each piece. I like to hang these pieces each Christmas season.
