There's something to be said for being Amish....

Since I started quilting, I have nurtured a fascination of the Amish,
they are the most brilliant quilters, I love, love, love the simplcity of them and the intricate quilting is incredible, I have secretly fostered the idea of going and living amongst them, and quilting to my hearts content....

Currently with the world seeming to be headed towards environmental disaster, their ideals of simple living, plain dressing and resisting all things technological, are becoming even more increasingly attractive to me.

With the global oil crisis and claims petrol will reach $10 a litre, horses and buggies are also looking like an ecconomical and eco friendly alternative! horse poo is fantastic for growing those organic vegies......

I can see myself hanging out at this little market, maybe not wearing the bonnet....

but look, snoop shows how to in-corporate Amish ideals with modern day... and I'm sure I could too!!
