Granny squares and cute knitted animals

I've made 12 granny square blocks thus far (Very slow quilting progress, I know *embarrassed*). Still have a long way to go. 

My mom has been knitting the cutest stuffed animals from the book "Knitted Toy Tales" by Laura Long. Below is the frog prince, little piggy and a mousey. 
Here is the complete menagerie, including the rabbit, teddy bears, birdy, owl, piggy, frog and mice. My mom says they are relatively quick and easy to knit, although one must concentrate, especially when knitting different colours. Aren't they adorable!

Beautiful granny squares. This quilt will look perfect in your backyard, with all of your roses. Love your mother's knitted menagerie also. A talented duo, you are!

Your granny squares are the most beautiful colours!! I laughed at all the cute little animals- they so cute and fun - your mum have been busy!!! The frog prince is my favourite, I like his big googly eyes and upright crown.
