Fuel for the Road

Sometimes you just need to get away! It has been two years since Hubby and I had a “Chore Revolt”, so we decided to do it again and when there is a nationwide Shop Hop going on, it’s easy to manipulate   plan a course that meanders our way south to Jacksonville.

The goals for this weekend were simple:

1) Visit quilt shops participating in the Row by Row Experience
2) Eat fabulous food

Our first stop…One of our favorites.


About 20 minutes south of Eugene, the Creswell Bakery is the brainchild of culinary expert Heidi Tunnell and her husband. It is local, local, local! And delicious. 🙂



In addition to bakery items, you can buy meat raised on the owners farm.



They also carry some unique gourmet treats – locally made ketchups, oils, and these finishing salts harvested on the Oregon coast not too far from Lewis & Clark’s salt works.


The bakery is located in an old church and serves a lovely breakfast. Hubby had an egg scramble that included a roasted chili paste and I had lemon curd/blueberry French toast. Unfortunately, I was so excited to eat I forgot to take photos. (And I call myself a foodie! 😦 )

We did get a dozen donut holes for the road. Warning – they really are closer to the size of donuts! Here is the lone survivor:


We actually brought five of them home to share with our son, but the dog thinks they are bites of Heaven, too!!

Next stop…quilt shops!

Until then,

Happy Quilting!
