Pillows!

36 days until our Escape pick up!!! My mom made pillows for our Escape and they are so absolutely wonderful that I wanted to share a picture of two of them!

Appropriate as you can get, tell Mom nice work. I'd be interested in seeing or hearing what folks do to make their dinettes more lounge like for those long rainy periods.

Pillows are needed to cushion the shade hardware from gouging your back—at least in the wrap around seating in our 5.0.

Depends on the activity... If we're reading, one of us typically stretches out on the bed while the other sits side-ways on the driver's side dinette bench, back against a pillow on the bathroom wall and feet up on the bench.

But we're still finding our way on this one -- we haven't had that many "reading days".

I do like a comfortable seat for reading, so I'm interested in what's possible. For me, "more comfortable" means better padding and less upright. It strikes me that even with the table removed, there's not a lot of room between the benches for this sort of modification. And whatever we do, we will still want a table from time to time and the ability to convert it back to another sleeping spot.

Thanks!!! My folks are pretty amazing--mom is quite crafty and dad is a woodworker. I'm glad they share their talents so that we can make our Escape a home away from home!

Definitely excellent work on the pillows. Our trailer is all stock, and I'm not too excited by the colours. We need to find some bright colours that don't clash with the beige and wood.

Now get your dad working on shelves and book racks and...

I'm definitely going to need pillows for the lounge area of my new 5er. I bought extra fabric and will get the yardage not used for the upholstery/valances back when I pick Ten Forward up. Kathie and I spent some time at the fabric stores in Portland and she helped me pick out some nice coordinating fabric for the pillows. Now, just need to find the time. I know it won't get done before the Oregon Gathering.

Can your Mom help me Tash?

Wow, those pillows are gorgeous. Your mom is very talented.

I've also been looking for ways to be comfortable on those wet northwest evenings. Here are two more threads I've bookmarked on making the dinette more comfortable.
Comfy Chairs
Dinette Question
