College Move In Day

Today was move in day for my towns college, IUP. Since I am a restaurant manager in that town, WELL it is CRAZY. We get packed and run around like nuts, but I love it!
It is like our small quiet town gets bursted at the seams. And yes I know bursted is not a word, but works for me in this instance. lol
The kids are great and we really miss them over the summer. And today is the first day of our fair. I wanted to have a few things done to enter at the fair, but did not do it. So I should be ready way ahead of time for next year.
I am working on a mini quilt with a Halloween theme right now for a swap on HGTV. I love Halloween, so am excited about this project and if it turns out right, I will make myself one too. The other thing I am working on right now is my embroidered butterfly. I have an afghan that I am crocheting too. So depending on my mood, I pick up a needle of one kind or another and get to work. lol
I know I need to post pics and will get to that soon. The hard thing with that now that I have my laptop is that my picture resizer is upstairs in my sons room with the desktop and I am on the laptop all the time. And too lazy to go upstairs!!
One other thing that I am excited about is I am getting a new washer, dryer and fridge delivered tomorrow! Can`t wait, as all those appliances in my house now are over 20 years old, and am hoping to save on the electric bill with these new ones.
I got a front loading washer and dryer and the pedastal for them to sit on. Make it a little easier on the back too. :)

First this is for Shogun who told me it was time to post something!! lol

here is the address
I can not seem to make links work, so you will have to copy and paste, but it will be worth your time.
Other news, I just got back from vacation and we went to New Jersey for the kids to go to Six Flags amusement park. They had a good time and I laid on the beach all day, so we were all happy. We also took the ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
I loved Ellis Island and want to go back again with more time to read about the history of it. I really enjoyed seeing the old pics, and reading the boat manifests.
I finally found my camera cord. Seems that when my hubby thinks I spread out my crazy quilting supplies, magazines, books, yarn, etc, to far into the living room, he puts all the stuff in a box and puts it back into my sewing area. Well yesterday I decided to clean a little back there and there was my cord. Pics will be coming, I have quite a few to share of projects I am working on and things that are finished and mailed out.
