I've made a raft of changes to the projects gallery. I've separated them by type and have slowly begun to add in descriptions, along with links to any available patterns. I still need to add quilting and cooking photographs, but overall I'm very happy with how things are shaping up.
It's slow-going, but the SquareSpace interface makes the whole thing way easier than it would have been with Wordpress. Their customer service is fantastic; I had one thumbnail turn out a little wonky, and so I filled out a support ticket. They sent me instructions to fix the problem within a half an hour--and they worked on the first try!
If you need to build yourself a website, I highly recommend SquareSpace.
