This is the upstairs bedroom that is located in a darling "cubbyhole" room that is nicknamed the "birthing room". Evidently my ancestors used this room because the chimney goes straight up the center and keeps the room warm. The walls are the original brown ash and very beautiful.

This is one of the first "hide a beds". My dad thinks it belonged to his grandmother and that she probably ordered it from the Sears catalog.
It looks like a chest when you fold it up. I will probably keep it folded up, but it looks so cool I have decided to leave it down for awhile.

My wonderful Maine friends, Janet, Eleanor, Ellen, and Evelyn helped me iron out the kinks in creating a quilting retreat. I am now all set to open this spring. I plan on limiting the retreat to 8 women at a time. Later on there will be room in the barn for more, but I want to start small. It was such a fun weekend. The girls are all going to put their Friendship Fans together and we will display them at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the barn on Oct. 9th.

This is the new bench that Mike built into the center post of the barn. That back piece is from my great grandfather's house across the road. We are going to call that house the "Quilter's Quarters". I'm traveling to Maine March 9th to visit and bring my dad back to San Diego for a month. Can't wait to see all the new surprises inside the barn.
