If the shoe fits...buy it

Yesterday my husband had his first IV cancer treatment which he hates getting "poked".  The worst part is that in order for insurance to cover the procedure he also has to get Interferon by subcutaneous injection.  Unfortunately, by supper time he was reacting to the Interferon by having chills and was shaking then became nauseated. Needless to say he had a rough night until about midnight.  I'm hoping today will be better for him. Since I was spending quite a bit of time keeping an eye on him, I didn't get a chance to sneak downstairs to work on a project until after midnight.  This is what I came up.

Using Jak Heath's digital image to support Katie I thought was perfect last night.  I colored the shoe blue for the Create Colour Challenge which is Pink, Blue, Grey, and white with the optional additional feature of flowers.  I found this beautiful soft pattern by Memory Box.  I think this will also work for this week Pollycraft has a challenge of pastels.
