Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Seeing the pictures would be great even if it meant one or two fewer crafts. Perhaps the same ones wouldn't need to be repeated quite so often if pictures were available. I'd catch what I want the first time around. I probably don't need any more patterns anyways as I've saved about 300 and about as many on your sister site All Free Crochet and the Christmas site.

Is there a way to see all the photos of all the projects at once? It would be easier to pick something out instead of scrolling through pages and pages. Thanks.

I understand that ads need to be on the page, but please stop letting them pop up in front of the craft photos, its irritating. Thank you.
