It's been way too cold to paint anything out in the shop. I've learned how to crochet thanks to my very patient DIL and have made two (actually 1 1/2) afghans. I needed an indoor project and since DIL Lucy and I gathered a million pallets last summer, I decided to use one of them. I found a tutorial for an ottoman on Shelly Miller Leers blog. It turned out great and will be a nice change from the table I usually have in the living room. The only thing I would do differently is find a supplier of wide foam. The fabric stores only sell 24 inch wide foam so I had to use two pieces. It's also really expensive. Luckily, it was 50% of at JoAnn's.
