I think the world of my mom. I thought it only fitting that I surround her in rainbows for this challenge because she's a source of light and happiness for me. This is a photo of her from the 6th grade taken in 1966. I printed it on inkjet printable fabric and stitched the inner details using cotton and metallic floss. I cut the fabric photo to size and then stitched it to a larger piece of unbleached muslin using the satin stitch border.
Here is a link to the photo in Flickr, too, where the detail is a little easier to see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/xperimentl/8520839687/in/photostream
Thanks for hosting this challenge, kittykill. I can't wait to see the other entries. This was my first stitched photo, but definitely won't be my last!
