This week’s Five on a Friday post is from Mary Gordon of Creative Voyage – an Edinburgh based film-maker, photographer and Artist’s Way Facilitator . Here next Artist’s Way group starts on the 2nd of February.When she’s not busy with those projects she can usually be found with some crochet or knitting on the go.
“I’m washing out glass jars as its marmalade making season. I love the cheeriness of the colour and the zing of the taste. A history of marmalade here .
