I'm in the Club!

No, not that club, way too old! I mean Maggie Grey's Catalogue-in-the-Garden club. I've done two because I like to hedge my bets! Ouch! They've both been dunked in a bucket of water and are in varying states of decline. All over the country and possibly the world, otherwise sane ladies (and who knows, maybe even the occasional gentleman or two) are planting catalogues and phone books in their gardens and nipping out in the dead of night to throw buckets of water on them in the hope that a wonderful work of art will materialise in November. Watch this space, and Maggie's blog and if you want to join in you'll need to buy Maggie's wonderful new book. Who me? Course not (hmm) I never buy books! Much!!!
Glossy brochure.

I bought the book at Ally Pally but I've still not got around to putting a catalogue in the garden!

My 2 catalogues are decaying nicely, my DH thinks i have lost the plot,

Looks like you had a wonderful time felting. It is fun, and good exercise!!

Good luck on rotting your catalog.

I will follow this catalogue project with great interest :-)

This sounds so bonkers it sounds like something I really ought to be joining in with :)

A rotting catalogue would be right at home in our garden right now! I really do need to tidy it up!!

I'm like you, I like to have "choices" so I've tossed 2 out into the backyard in the hopes that the heat we're still having does something marvelous to them. I just got Maggie's book and of course love it and have joined the group!! See you there!
