I finished the English cottage years ago, and the Greek island one recently. I have framed them now in matching cheap Ikea box frames (Ribba). The frames are 9x9", the cross stitched picture is about 5x5". The picture mounts came with the frames and happened to be exactly the right size and colour. I'm not very good at cutting straight edges so I was very happy to find out that the mounts matched exactly.





 -- edit: I just don't seem to be able to rotate those pictures. They are rotated on my computer, but they won't upload that way on here. Anyone has any advice about that?

If you go to the My Picture Hosting section of your My Craftster section, click the photo, go all the way to the bottom and there is a section called "Admin Options".  Click "Edit Photo".
Then in the upper right corner under a thumbnail of your picture you have options to rotate: "Rotate CCW" and "Rotate CW"  click one of those until it's the right way then click submit changes at the bottom.

And amazing cross stitches!  Just wow!

Beautifully done, those simple frames are great. I looked up Michael Powell's patterns, they are so interesting!

First try pressing the Ctrl key at the same time as the F5 key. Sometimes your computer will have a page saved in the cache and not show the updated page right away, this will refresh it.
If it's still rotated try the advice from geekgirl above.
When I rotated pictures in Craftster's image hosting they ended up stretched out and distorted, I posted about it here and got a solution:

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

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

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Happy accidents are great, aren't they? Your finished pieces are stunning and they look fantastic in the frames.
