Stains, River Thames
Who says lock keepers are always busy?
An early start as the weather was beautiful. Lots of rowers in every type of canoe, skiff and kayak. It's great doing the locks early before the lock keepers come on duty. We seem to get through the locks so much quicker - and it is so easy now they are electrified.
1st poppy of the year?
By noon it was raining so we decided to moor at by a lovely park just past Stains Bridge. I walked into town and there was a market with a great bread/cake stall.
A grotty photo of this card, sorry. I began with a piece of gold and pink handmade paper which was "feathered" and added the pink sequin waste over it. Then I stuck down the ballet dress and three pairs of ballet pumps.
The whole this is stuck onto a white card base.
