This Post Brought To You By....

A gift from my blogless friend Cathy, who knows me SO well.  Don't you just love this?  Thank you Cathy, you sure know how to brighten my day!  Cathy's "thing" is Betty Boop, mine is Lucy.  You should see all her Betty Boop stuff....so cute!

You may have seen some sites blacked out today, to protest the SOPA/PIPA bills currently pending.  Wikipedia, Google, and even Flickr.  This bill proposes to stop online piracy, but is really an ill-concealed attempt to completely control the internet.

If you click on the photo, you'll see the message from flickr.  Please consider visiting one of these sites and signing the petitions to stop this bill.

I wanted to let you all know that I'm taking a mental health blog break.  My quilting mojo seems to have flown south, not taking me with it.  Stupid mojo.  Rather than bore you silly with all I'm not getting done, I'll just go quiet.  I'll be back in a week or two, at which time I hope to have something to share.  Y'all behave yourselves!

I'm still fighting with my lost mojo from November, but it's coming back slowly, in different tasks.

Everything smart has flown south, Allie -- but it will all come back. Have a lovely hibernation. (And I can't wait to see that new quilt, when you two are reunited!)

Mary said...

Lol - I love that I Love Lucy print...it just makes me smile :) Enjoy your hiatus Allie and I'll look forward to seeing you back online once your mojo has been recharged.

Val said...

I LOVE Lucy too!!! Sometimes a girl has just got to do what she needs to do. Just don't stay away too long!!!

I love your I Love Lucy picture. I'm on a positive kick, letting only positive thoughts and ideas into my mind, that includes not watching all the negative stuff on TV. So now in the morning when I'm getting ready for the day I'm watching I Love Lucy. Certainly gets my day off to a good start and with a smile! Here's to good mental health!

Dolores said...

"Lucy, I'm home"is what my hubby used to say. Lucy is my fav too.
Have a nice quiet break.

Mama Pea said...

Have a nice blogging break. I'll miss you. You behave, too....but not too much. Have some fun and get your mojo on.

Oh Allie, we understand. We all get like that some time or another. Enjoy your break, relax and your mojo will return. Don't feel pressurised to 'produce'. Just relax, take deep breaths and enjoy just being Allie!

Take care Allie. I agree with Cheryll. I know what you mean about mojo. I had big plans for sewing after my kids went from Christmas visiting but !!!!!. Hugs,

What a great gift! My daughter and I are huge Lucy fans (and Warhol).

Hope you have a wonderful and relaxing break -- that's often all it takes to get the old mojo back.

MOJOfind! Can you look for mind while you're at, lost mine last June (last post) and I miss it!!!

Marg H said...

We will miss you but look forward to your return with mojo in tow!!

Anne said...

Allie, just consider it "creative down time" - very useful for regenerating those brain cells. I'm a bit the same way for different reasons - putting our house back together, lol.

Loralynn said...

I understand the need to hibernate. I've been doing that a lot myself lately. Hope you have a good rest.

Cheryl said...

Possibly our mojo's are hanging out in some exotic place together...hmmm!! We will miss you and can't wait for your return. (hugs)!!!

Tanya said...

Now don't take too much time off! We'll miss you! But while you're not blogging you'll have all that extra time to sew!

Sharon said...

Lucy is my favorite too! Great picture from your friend.

I think I've found my mojo - I'm just hoping it won't leave before I accomplish some things! Hope your break is good and you find some new mojo!

Wendy B said...

Lucy NEVER dates....pity tv doesn't retain that innocence anymore!!!!
Hope your mojo flies back to you soon.....I'm feeling a little the same :o( Let's just mosey on Jo back home!!!!

Carrie P. said...

Oh, that is not fun.
take all the time you need.
Hugs!

Shari said...

Just saying hi and hope you enjoy all the other things you'll be doing - like visiting friends and walking in the crisp air, cleaning out the hall cupboard and maybe even the junk drawer. Before you know it you'll get inspired to create something...

Erin said...

Love it!

Wendy said...

Have a good break Allie. I'm fighting with my mojo too, but I'm going to win!

Val said...

Just wanted to say I miss you!!!!
