I started this ottoman before I threw my back out.  It was all cut out, except for the lining for the skirt, and I had even serged everything.
Then, as you already know, I spent 6 days in bed.  I thought about this slipcover a lot but couldn't do anything about completing it.
Finally, I was able to work on it.  Of course, it took about three days because I couldn't really sit down for very long.  I am still doing my best to get back to work.  Now, as much as anything, it is fear that I will hurt myself again and have to go back to bed.  The short-term solution is using banquet tables pushed together.  I'm going to have to get the extenders to make them higher, as they are currently about 13" too short for me.  Long term solution is to have a work table built and turn my living room into the workroom that it already is.  The sofa is getting put in the garage, but it's not like I sit on it anyway and I will need the extra space.  My finished table will be 12' long. 6' wide and 43 1/2" high.  Rather large but what I need.
And this lovely piece of furniture is the ottoman before it got its new slipcover.  The after is much nicer, don't you think?
