Pink and Butterflies?

This is a picture of my new dining room valance.  I am not sure I like the green under-valance.  It seems to droop.  I think it's the hem but am thinking about removing it altogether.  Not sure it is necessary.  The colors look good in the dining room though.  My husband who wished they made Garanimals for adults said it looked good.  My 11-year-old daughter Samantha said, "Pink and Butterflies?  It does not get any better than that."  This is from a girl who entered our cat in an onlne baby contest and then signed her up for a Gerber life insurance policy.

Variegated and the Yarn Stash

I was looking at my projects on ravelry the other day and noticed all of them are variegated and the funny thing is I cannot stand variegated yarn. When I first started crocheting, hand-dyed yarns were just coming out and the big thing. I had a full-time job then so I built my stash with all the fascinating variegated yarns and now I am stuck. I really prefer matte solids now but I have all this stripy stuff. I'll just have to work through it.
