ta-da!It's the CHUNKYCHOOKY I-PHONE APP!!!

No one is more excited than me about this:
I have an app, yes, there is now a chunkychooky app!! You can download this app for free!! It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.1 or later.( if you have iPhone 3 like me you can update- just plug it in to your computer)  How exciting is that!?!???!
This is the little icon I made that will be on your phone if you download it.

So how did I get an app??
A lovely woman called Sarah who reads my blog asked me to make her a Hobart cushion- of which I did. Sarah has a son, Sebastian who really liked the cushion. Seb found my blog and well he OFFERED to make me an app.
Seb, is a 12 year old genius. And he made my app. He did. Yes, he is 12!!! 
Seb also told me over 200 people have downloaded it since it has been on itunes- about 4 days ago and I have only told Chef, Kate and Vic. So this means what?

Well it means more traffic to my blog and hopefully more traffic to yours too. I want to share the benefits of this app with everyone who reads this blog. Part of the speil on itunes about this app is there are loads of links to lots of other blogs from this app.  So see that little list of blogs I like? It is going to change and grow all the time.

Also if you know of any great tutorials or free patterns I want to know as I am going to link to them too- I have started a small list up the top in the right hand corner but please let me know about any you have come across or any you have made. So far people from 10 different countries have downloaded this app.
How exciting is it?
I am excited.
Very.
I wonder what will happen next?

  21. I struggle to get mobile reception let alone an iphone! But, it seems from the excitement in those comments that having your own app (I don't really get what an app does) is pretty jolly exciting-so, well done you and Sebastion (wow, 12!). Now, from memory- weren't you late on the uptake of this modern device? Well, if I am correct in thinking that, I think you have well and truly caught up now!

  22. Hello. Thank you in retrospect for you gorgeous blog. I have not commented before as I truly never know what to say. But thanks should do it. You are quite an inspiration. Reading and seeing your photos is a treat at the end of the day. At the risk of opening a can of worms, I would have some hesitation in making publicly available the sweet photo of your daughter. You may be aware of the possiblities and made the decision any way (if so ignore me and I apologise for stcking my nose in your business). It's just a dear friend once discovered the misuse of one of her family photos and it was devastating.
    Truly wishing you everything good. Regards Ros

  26. I just found your app on iTunes and wow, I'm so impressed! A twelve year old boy made this for you? That's amazing!

  31. Your own app - that is awesome! (Although sometimes kids and technology frighten me, it is so beyond my understanding). I have a reversible skirt tutorial on my blog if that is the sort of thing you are looking for:

    Will be downloading your app as soon as I remember my itunes password...
