Cross stitch is typically done using a round-end tapestry needle. The size you use depends on your fabric. If you are stitching a kit, use the needle that came with it. If not, see this article on choosing a needle for cross stitch.

Thread your needle just as you would a needle for hand sewing. Don’t make a knot in the tail end. You will stitch over the tail as you work to secure it without needing a knot. As a general rule, you want to avoid using knots when cross stitching because they can leave lumps in the final piece.

For sure you are want to beautifully display your finished cross stitch, embroidery or needlework projects.
The easiest way to do it is to put them in a frame.
Just choose a frame that complements your design and a neutral mat color for the mat next to the frame.
Before framing make sure you have enough extra fabric around the design.
