I often limp towards winter's finish line with a runny nose, dry skin, and numb fingertips. To help myself make it through the season in one warm piece, I went looking for projects specifically suited for the cold.

You can easily make a set of sheepskin ottomans or stools similar to these from French for Pineapple. Think how good your feet will feel while propped up on the warm fur.
