I know, I got you all excited last week (on Facebook) with some very exciting news,then I couldn't tell you because there was a bug…… :(  but it is fixed so today is the big announcement…

But first, better late than never I have to announce the winners of the new Christmas patterns….. random number generator tells me the winners are:

18  Love the wee puddings on the candle mat pattern! That's a good reminder - to get organized to make puddings as I do every year.
Thanks for this.

30  I love Gran's Christmas Table! These would be great in non-Christmas fabrics too!

40  Wow love all your new Christmas pattern but I think I would love to win Grans Christmas Table. These would make lovely Christmas gifts to bring joy and happiness for many years to come for the receivers. Thanks for all your wonderful creations. Happy days. Paula NZ

So, although I did say one of each pattern, you have all requested the Gran’s Christmas Table runner – so you can all have it! Please email your snail mail addys and we’ll get them straight into the mail for you.

Now to my news….

I HAVE AN APP!!! – yes my very own really truly
Hugs ‘n Kisses app!  appbadge2now it doesn't really do much, but when a good friend told me that her 12 year old (yes 12 year old) was developing apps I couldn't resist. Together we have worked very hard to make it appealing, useful and all things Hugs ‘n Kisses. And as he learns we will be adding more to it…like special announcements, quotes of the week etc.

For now it looks great! – and has links to my store, website, blog, facebook page

a stitch guide – yes that’s right – all of the most used stitches (including all of those learnt in Stitched Sundays) are right there on your Iphone or Ipod- with links to the step by step tutorials- never again will you have to go searching when you need to remember a stitch.

So, if you have an Iphone, ipod or Ipad or anything other “i”  then search in the app store for Hugs ‘n Kisses or follow this link: http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/hugs-n-kisses/id471813377?mt=8

to download it. Now – just a word of warning tho – the ‘fixed’ version may not yet be showing up on itunes – if you download now you can easily do the update when it shows up, if not just wait maybe a few hours until version 1.1 is showing… it is taking longer than we thought and I couldn’t not tell you again after keeping you in suspense….

thanks for sharing my excitement! – well I'm excited anyway,

hugs to all today

and a big thanks to Seby for being such an entrepreneur


PS – oh - did I mention the app is free for now?
