E is for


AtoZ elephant

Elephants are the largest land-living mammals in the world.  Baby elephants are called calves, and live inside their mothers for 22 months before they’re born.  Their trunks are used to pick up food or suck up water and pour it into its mouth.

E is also for Erase  (this is not a quilting tip).  Wanting to touch up some scuffed wooden furniture?  Well, erase those scuffs with a walnut:


Happy challenge!                   Blessings, Peg


  1. Hello! Zebras are my favorite animal, but I like elephants a lot, too! They're so sweet.

    Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

  2. That's a neat trick with the walnuts!

    I love elephants. They are fascinating creatures.

  3. A walnut??!! Hey, thanks for the tip!

  4. Love the walnut tip for furniture. We sometimes use a brown crayon and a light touch for the same basic effect.
