I appreciate the compliments, guys!  Thanks for taking the time to comment.  Smiley

Neat stitching as always.  Great texture with the stitches and coloration.

How neat that you had lace and beads from your grandmother that you could integrate into the piece.  I like the symbolism of the flowers representing your children, too. 

I hope you can remove the added artwork by your little one, on the other hand maybe it makes it even more special.

This is just too sweet.  What a cute photo to begin with and then to add the stitches and color the way that you did, so great!

I agree with kittykill, there's a supernatural feel to those wolves.  I love the idea of adding something to the photo that wasn't there to begin with.

Haunting and sentimental; even the cheerful prints and buttons seem kind of sad on this.  Really nice.

Thanks everyone.  I showed this to my mom after I unveiled it on Craftster.  She said she was honored and old. 
I love the glasses, too.  They were actually gold glitter. They sold me on using this photo.

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!

It is so cool to see blackwork used in a modern design.  I've only ever seen samplers or traditional pieces.  I love the way you used it here.
