A birthday for Francis

This is the very delicious cake that my husband made for me on Friday for my birthday. Can you believe that the man made a cake, complete with vanilla frosting and sheep and flower decorations? Ok, so I had pre-made the sheep and flowers for a previous cake project but he had the insight to put them on the cake. It tasted as good as it looks. I have since demanded that I get this cake every year.
I also finished the Francis Revisited sweater about a week ago. I still need to block it but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I modified the sleeves and made them longer and omitted the increases and made the cowl more of a turtleneck. Knit out of Cascade Eco wool, this thing will keep me toasty during this seemingly endless winter. Now I am working on a Long Rabbit amigurumi, which was one of the many birthday gifts that N sent to me. I adore this pattern and plan on making a herd of rabbits, which apparently is what a group of rabbits is called.

I believe there is some paranormal activity happenin' behind the cake. I'm a'scared.
