pretty, pretty, ugly, and pretty again!

I've made some more of the yarn-eating totes, and I'm still loving them!

First, this color-coordinated effort:

Then, this garish item, which the children nonetheless love:

They use it to carry their toys around the house - they tie ropes on the handles and haul their toy animals up and down the stairs.

And then, my very favorite, this lovely Easter-y one:

The only problem with this project? All the ends I have to weave in. Check it out:

But I'm close to getting all my old Red Heart skeins down to the place where they'll be merely a stripe or two on my scrap afghan.

Maybe once the one at the top is done, I'll be there.

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

I didn't get until the end that the first one wasn't finished! Love the Easter-y one.
P.S. I really like your new contemplative photo avatar. =)
