Needlework Tuesday: Monster Movie blanket

This is one of my current works in progress.  I made a small version of this for a friend's baby that's on the way and as soon as I finished I started this one.  It's a great mindless project to work on while I watch something on television after dinner.  It's also helping me reduce my big box of scraps yarn.

October is the month I like to watch old monster movies.  And just lighter movies with a Halloweenish theme.  One of my favorites is Blithe Spirit from 1945.

Rex Harrison is charming in this Noel Coward ghost story.

Of course, The Fly from 1958 features an undeniably sexy Vincent Price.  Few men can pull off a dressing gown in this wild color, but he does.

Day 6 of my Harry Potter Project of Doom quilt.  This is one of my favorite blocks - a venomous tentacula.

I like the way this one turned out. 

Linking up today with Heather at Books and Quilts.

2 people stopped folding laundry to write:

Thanks for dropping by for a visit. I have to put my quilt on hold for a vacation, but will be back to the next border after that.
I am making a giant granny square afghan as well, though mine is still much smaller. i love the colours you are using.

Love the quilt and the afghan. I'm making one too, using up all my scraps. Have a great day!
