Pennsylvania Dutch Country

We've lived here for 2 1/2 years now, just 40 minutes from where there is a large Amish population.  And, since we're moving next week, we finally made it down to do a tour.  It was neat to learn some more about them.  In our area, they live mixed in with everyone else - not in their own separate community or anything like that.  Their house would look just like their neighbor, who isn't Amish, only there's no electricity.

It was really neat to see their quilts - I think they use pedal machines to piece them, but all the quilting was hand-stitched.

Hours and hours of stitching.  They're just beautiful.

And of course...feeding the chickens was a big hit.
