Stash-Busting Update and Spring in our home

Hello !!
Hola !!

How is your week going ?
Como va vuestra semana ?

It's been so hot this week in Madrid it's not funny ! I know it is nice for most of you, but I would much prefer a smoother entry into the summer as in Madrid summer can be long and really, really hot !! (specially for someone that does not like heat like me) 
Aqui en Madrid esta haciendo mucho calor y la verdad es que yo prefiero que hubiera una entrada mas suave al verano, que luego en Madrid es bastante duro (sobre todo para alguien a quien no le gusta el calor como a mi)

I have been up to a lot lately but unfortunately not much crafting. A lot of work (real life) in the office and well last night just because my connection to the work server was not working I had to stop working and make a little stash-busting, just made 1 square last night  as it was already very late. 
He estado muy ocupada las 3 ultimas semanas pero desafortunadamente no ha sido haciendo ganchillo ni cosiendo. Tengo un periodo de mucho trabajo y bueno anoche como no me podía conectar al servidor del trabajo tuve que parar de trabajar y me puse a hacer un cuadradito de ganchillo para la manta de arriba. 

Also I had to travel to Lisbon for work and I met a friendly Portuguese blogger,  we are preparing a post about that special meeting so stay tuned!
También he estado en Lisboa por trabajo y allí conocí a una bloguera  Portuguesa muy simpática, estamos preparando una noticia sobre este encuentro especial así que seguir conectadas !

I showed you this blanket before but now Im up to 158 squares finished 21 of those are flowers.
Os enseñe esta manta aquí, pero ahora he avanzado un poquito mas y voy por 158 cuadrados de los cuales 21 son flores.  

I still have not finished the blanket and I'm running out of the cream yarn (again. . . I already bought extra yarn for this project 3 times !)
Aun no esta terminada y me queda muy poquita lana beige (de nuevo . . . ya he tenido que ir a compra lana para esta manta 3 veces !) 

Anyway I'm loving this project and how is looking but it seems far from finished, not sure. . . maybe it will be a lap-blanket instead of a full blanket in the end. . . we will see. . . 
La verdad es que me esta encantando hacer esta manta y como esta quedando (sobre todo cuando la veo de lejos y los colores se funden) pero esta lejos de estar terminada, no se , igual se queda en manita en lugar de manta . . . ya veremos . . .

The tulips I planted back in October, when I still did not have a blog are now blossoming . . . so that is the sign that spring has finally arrived into my household . . . 
Los tulipanes que plante en Octubre, cuando aun  no tenia un blog, acaban de florecer . . . eso es señal de que la primavera ha llegado finalmente a nuestro hogar . . .

And more of the blanket . . . .
Y mas fotos de la manta . . .

Have a lovely week !!
Que tengáis una buena semana !!

  4. Lovely colours in your blanket and those flower squares are a pretty touch.
    Enjoy hooking this one.

  5. Your blanket is very lovely. I am making a baby blanket with lots of color....seeing yours, maybe adding more white or creme will help tone down the brightness.
    blessings, jill

  6. Your blanket is looking beautiful. I'm glad you had time to do a new square. It will be gorgeous no matter what size. Your tulip is beautiful. We are starting to have flowers pop up here too though our weather is still pretty cool overall. I'm looiking forward to reading out your Portugal trip. That is where we went our honeymoon and we loved it there.
