I was invited to participate in Italy’s premier yarn bombing festival, Yarn Bombing Day Trivento. I eagerly accepted! I wanted to create a piece with an inspiring and uplifting message, and the Earth, Wind and Fire song, You’re a Shining Star had been floating around in my head. It was perfect because it’s true! I wanted to infuse the project with my new love, tufting, so I created all the letters using my tufting gun and placed them onto a crochet background.
Lastly, I split the chorus lyrics into both English and Italian English representing me, the maker and Italian, representing the people inviting me to be a part of their lives and to bring home the message is for everybody.
