Pinspiration -Spider-Man

Avengers Infinity War has now been released, but I never did complete my series of Road to Infinity War pinspiration posts. So for the last character in the series, it is the turn of Spider-Man. Peter Parker’s alter ego has remained a fan favourite for years, due to the reboot movie franchises and animated series. Personally, I am a fan of the 1994 Spider-Man: Animated Series.

Pins from Pinterest inspired by Spider-Man
Spider-Man blanket
Spider Web Blanket by AnneM

The Spider-Man’s Web Blanket by AnneM, is an amazing pattern. I am obsessed with knitting patterns that use different construction methods. Which this pattern does, the blanket is knit from the inside out and the “webbing” is added afterwards. Creating a visually stunning blanket.

Candy Apples, always remember me of Bonfire Night. We always ate toffee apples whilst watching the fireworks. I never thought of having them at any time other than in November. But these are seriously cute. I love how Nerdy Mum make eyes from marshmallow to decorate them.

Spider Man Cross Stitch
Cross Stitch by Nikki Pattern

I love how this cross stitch used the different shade of thread to add a geometric dimension to the sewn artwork. The different triangles interlock to create a textured effect to Spider-Man’s mask.

Spider-Man Cake
Spider-Man Cake by Amanda Cookin

Normally, I have added cupcake or cake pop recipes to these pinspiration posts. However, this Spider-Man cake is fabulous. Amanda’s Cookin has given detailed instructions not only on how to decorate the cake but also to make the oval-shaped cake.

Five Summer Films

This Friday I’m going to talk about the five films that are released this summer that I’m most looking forward to. You might notice that several of these films are sequels to my comfort films from last week.

  1. Finding Dory

    Normally I say don’t make a sequel to a classic movie, but the follow-ups to Pixar’s greats like Toy Story have been amazing, so I have high hopes for this film. I’m looking forward to learning more about Dory – discovering how she learnt to speak whale and hopefully seeing her reunite with her family.
  2. Everybody Wants Some

    Technically, this isn’t a sequel but Richard Linklater has referred to this film as a spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused. I love Dazed and Confused, the plot set over one night, the script (Just Keep Living), and the cast (it’s one of the first films for both Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey). I’m hoping this film serves up a lot of the same.
  3. Captain America: Civil War
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKrVegVI0UsIt’s the latest instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, A Captain America film, Steve and Bucky back together! Ant-Man joining the team, introducing Black Panther and Spider-Man into the MCU – what is not to look forward to about this film!
  4. Suicide Squad

    I know Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wasn’t well received by the audiences and critics, and I’m trying not to judge this film based on the previous DC movie. Whilst I am a little concerned about seeing a new Joker (can anyone top Heath Ledger), that hasn’t stopped me adding it to the list!

  5. Jason Bourne

    ITV have a tendency to show the same films in the evenings, the Ocean’s Eleven films and the first three Bourne films, as result Jason and I have seen these movies several times and they have become guilty pleasures. Now we have Matt Damon back as Jason Bourne ready to bring down Treadstone.
