May the 4th Be With You!

Today we went shopping :)  It was my hubbies first time shopping at Gracie Lou's in Salem.  I think he might have been impressed :)  My SIL gave me a gift certificate for there so I needed to spend it naturally.
Here is what I bought officially from her-

I had to take multiple photos because it is SO cute!  I have had my eyed on this for a while now.  It is just so pricey that I have stayed away.    I am SO excited to do something with it :)
I also hit the sale stack at Gracie Lou's and bought the backing for my Retro Flower quilt-

Again, too many pics :)  It has the pinks in it and the grey to tie it all together :)
I also bought more of this print that I keep finding uses for :)  At 40% off, why not? I didn't take a picture, but it is the Central Park line, the piece that looks like sea weed to me ;)
And one more cut of fabric was purchased today at Walmart.  I was looking for a pattern and my 6 year old just HAD to have this fabric.  Who am I to deny the fabric lover in my son?

Yes, he has a planet thing.  I of course had to make something to honor Star Wars day :)  ... you know, May the 4th be with you?  It's may the force be with you with a lisp ;)  Here is what I made for the boys :0 17 year old wants one too :)

Pillow cases, of course!  The boys love them and hopefully this will get my 6 year old off my back about his birthday quilt that he is not getting until DECEMBER ;D  It's probably wishful thinking, but I can dream cant I?
Have a GREAT Friday!  I am off to run errands with the chillins so tomorrow is free to sew my hubbies birthday quilt tomorrow! xoxo
