That is what my Italian classes say that I am but I'm not sure about that. I have turned the translator off on the Italian embroidery blogs I follow and I can make out about 25% of the script, so perhaps they are right.
One blog that I follow is "Il Piacere del ricamo", The pleasure of embroidery, written by Silvana Fontinelli. I now know what 'Salve Ragazze' means. (Hello Girls) On her post No 640 she has a lovely little project that I am about to start stitching.
It is stitched in No 8 DMC perle cotton, so should stitch up very quickly. All the patterns are there on the blog along with very clear photos of how to stitch the piece. Silvana also does beautiful drawn thread work and if you are not learning Italian you can just translate it into English. This might make a nice Xmas decoration? (Oh the Italian says it's a Xmas decoration)
