So I just finished a giant (for me) 11" x 17" light house cross stitch piece  (Dimensions Gold Rocky Point) where every square is stitched. I worked on it off and on for a couple of years, and I must have had it too tight in my hoop at some times (I was kind of a noob  when I started it) because after I got it cleaned up to frame, the fabric is all stretched out of shape!! Like it's a diamond shape instead of a rectangle. I hope that makes sense. Anyway, I'm not sure how to fix this to frame it. I worked on this for so long, and I would really hate to see it end up in a drawer somewhere like others that I have done. Anyone have any advice??

Thanks! I will give this a try! It's pretty crooked so hopefully this works.
