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!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

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.
