Jukejema Quilting Barn

Well .... what a fabulous day I've had! I woke up with a spring in my step (for the first time in a week) and even managed to negotiate the 4 steps down to the clothesline! On the way back I spotted my beautiful orchids have flowered so came back inside to get the camera and take a picture! See what happens when you don't walk outside your back door for a week?

I had to go back to the surgeon today and have the stitches removed from my knee (happy dancing now!!). He was happy with the job and so am I and I can now walk a lot better without stitches and a bandage holding it all together! So......... I went to one of my favourite shops in Nowra called Jukejema Quilting Barn! It was so lovely to be able to have a browse through the lovely fabrics and things there! I loved all these bright and breezy summer prints made into some great things from Janelle Wind's new book "Pieces of Me". This little display was in the window!

And I loved all the colours in this fabulous quilt hanging on the wall! And I had a delve through the baskets in front of the quilt and found some goodies that I really really needed to have!

Loved this little set of designs from Amberwood Crafts which are classes being taught at the shop at the moment! And after quite a long while I wandered just down the road a few doors and enjoyed a lovely coffee and pumpkin soup for lunch! It was so nice to be out and about again! I'll share my shopping with you tomorrow!


  1. Happy to hear you are on the way to recovery and hope you continue without complications.Your orchids are beautiful.What an awesome shop. Wish I could visit makes me want to stitch up some of the beautiful things.
    I am feeling much better today and might even get some finishing done.
    Have a happy day!

  2. Your orchids are gorgeous! Glad to hear your getting out a bit now and starting to feel better.

  3. Glad you're up and about again! That quilt shop looks like a fun place to visit :) Thanks for the information on the GOS ornament, I appreciate it!

  4. Hi Fiona! Happy to meet you when you found my blog. I can see I am going to have to take time to look back at some posts on yours now. :-)

    Stitch in your knee? Did he use cross stitching...lol. Glad to hear you are better. And I think going to a quilt shop is a perfect way to celebrate! Did you only brouwse though??? I see lots of wonderful things. That is the problem with quilt shops. :-)

    Wish I could stop in and we could go have pumpkin soup. I love it and cannot wait until autumn so I can make things again when the pumpkins are ripe.

    Hugs from Holland ~

  5. What a gorgeous place and orchids! Glad you had a good day, I love pumpkin soup! Well, actually, I love soup full stop, lol!

    Do NOT overdo it - do you hear me - you didn't know you had another mother living in Michigan, did you, lol!

  6. You named your blog just right cause I feel peaceful every time I visit. So glad you are mending well and beginning to get out now. The whole world looks different when you've been recovering inside, doesn't it? Love the orchids & the shop..Quilters Refuge here is the same with so many temptations.

  7. Hello Fiona, good to hear you're recovering so swift ...I like the shop and the stitching things...Take care not too fast:) (This is the nurse speaking hahah)

  8. Isn't it wonderful to get out after you've been confined for a while? So glad to hear that you're feeling better and healing quickly!
