Lilo and Stitch Otherwise framed

I was a bit perturbed when I got Stitch framed. I went in with the intention of picking out a standard frame and then waiting two weeks, but instead, the dude framed it right then! They've never done that before and I wasn't prepared for the expense. I spent the entire time it took him checking my credit card balances to find one with enough space on it to cover the price. Plus, it was the bad guy and he screwed it up twice and had the gall to tell me it was because I hadn't stretched it evenly. I guess he's never stretched a cross stitch project before because they are rarely absolutely perfect (at least mine aren't). If I had the money (and it bothered me), I'd pay a professional framer hundreds of dollars to do it for me, but I'm poor, so I do it myself and crookedness is a way of life. It was pretty darn close to straight. I attest he just cut the mat crooked!

Don't worry, I did clean the fingerprints off...I just forgot before I took the picture (I'll take a better one later). It's also the first (and only) cross stitch project to have the distinction of actually hanging in my Duck Room (but only because it was the only spot with a previous print that had served its time and I had no other wall space).

It looks great. Bad framers always blame the stitcher when they have to redo something - ignore him.

It looks good hanging there, and you can really see what an amazing job you have done stitching it.

Fantastic look! Great colour choices and a nice place to hang it as well. Sorry you got the bad framer, but in the end it shows off your stitching nicely.

Well done on getting it framed and on the wall so quickly. I can't see that it looks crooked at all.
