Love At First Stitch - The Book Launch


Last night I was very privileged to attend the launch of Love at First Stitch, the widely anticipated debut book from Tilly and the Buttons. It's been such a joy seeing a fellow stitching blogger skillfully grow her passion into a fabulous business, so having the chance to share Tilly's special night was a real honour! I'll be addressing the book itself in a full review tomorrow as part of Love Sewing's blog tour, so for now I just wanted to share some pretty pictures from last night's shindig at Drink, Shop & Do

House of Pinheiro, Scruffy Badger Time and I arrived early to help set up


Once the decorating was done, a lot of larking around ensued!



I was wearing my new, scalloped neckline Lilou - full post coming soon!


Cocktails were consumed, but can you guess which one went down the best?!?


So many gorgeous, hand-stitched garments in one room! Can you spot any of your favourite bloggers among the crowds?


And the talented lady herself of course!



Massive congratulations Tilly, you're a true inspiration!

  1. Awww - that looks like such a brilliant night! I don't normally wish I lived in London (I love visiting it, but it's too crowded for me!), I do when I see all the amazing sewing blogger get-togethers! Can't wait to get my hands on Tillys new book, the patterns look beautiful - and on that note, I'm looking forward to you sharing more pics of that beautiful Lilou that you are wearing!
