i wish you had pictures for every step.

Hi, I think this would look good for all crafters. If you think about it you can replace the buttons with anything that you are into. Quilter, small quilt blocks for the hour, and half place. Baby's room...small baby stuff....kitchen...kitchen stuff...the list can go on and on.
