Baby Afghan: the final sprint

Baby Afghan: status update
Not yet the news I had hoped for, but since it had been quite a while since I've been able to get a stitch in (Jelena's birthday-party took much prep time), not surprising. But this weekend, I was finally able to get the afghan back out from under the dust it was gathering :-) I've finished another square this evening, now it's just ONE MORE left. I HOPE to get it finished this weekend (well, the stitching anyway, who knows when the actual finishing will be done). And since the weather is really autumn-like, she could really use it!

Unfortunately, not that many pics too share, since my photographer of service (my brother) gave up after only a couple of pics :-( (apparently, there was a problem with the memory-card), boohoo! Luckily, someone else was happily taking pics, so maybe I'll be able to share some pics later.
It was a great day, my cakes looked and tasted good, so good they all asked if I had really made them myself (YES, I did!). Here's a pic of me coming with the big birthday-cake.
There was some others next to this big cake, but no piccies :(

And just to make you hungry, some pics of other cakes made for other occasions
DSC00704 this one is a little cake with the left-other cake batter and creme au beurre from the big cake.

and since there are never too many pics of Jelena:
