Felt Mistress Creature Couture Book Launch and Exhibition At Foyles

Last night we had our book launch at Foyles. I had such fun and was so pleased to see so many friends and meet lots of online friends too. We were lucky enough to have the event sponsored by Jelly Belly who supplied us with their gourmet sodas and jelly beans, the colours and flavours were amazing. Also Tunnocks supplied us with boxes full of (G'goobs favourite) Teacakes, milk and dark chocolate I'd never tried the dark chocolate ones and they are delicious. (many thanks to both those companies)
I was a little nervous beforehand about the interview part of the evening but soon got into the swing of it and the audience were great, with lots of interesting questions to ask. I gave my camera to my lovely friend Drew as I knew I wouldn't get a chance to take any photos and he did a brilliant job.
As well as the launch we have an exhibition running until January on the 3rd floor gallery at Foyles (Charing Cross). Go find out what some of the FM characters want for Christmas and what New Year's resolutions they have. Here's some photos of the exhibition and the event. Many thanks to everyone involved, you made it such a lovely evening xxx
