That's a blatant lie, I'm in the Southern Hemisphere and it's 33 degrees and I've spent the day under the fan tatting these lacey snowflakes, which will become silver and gold rings, earrings and necklaces.
Some of these bad boys are going to a trade fair in Milan. Yes, the Italian one. Wish I was chaperoning them.
I've spent most of my life learning Italian- I can't speak that much, but I do have a fabulously fruity accent when ordering things like 'tiramisu'.
