The 5th block is embellished by Nina from Norway. She also found the theme very difficult and looked through several Internet sites to get knowledge about Jeanne d'Arc. She learned that Jeanne knew how to stitch, but did not know how to read....!
She stitched the date of Jeanne's Memorial Day. She also used beautiful soft tones for the embellishments and button trail.

The 6th block is done by Susie from England and she used wonderful soft pastel colors.
She added the word "La Pucelle" (The Maid) and Joan of Arc's dates of birth and death and surrounded them with ribbon flowers and embroidery. Also she added a duster of buttons with dangling bead chains with little hearts on the end (the name for my CQ wil be "Joan of Arc had a heart", do you know the song??).

Once again ladies, thanks for all your beautiful work. Today I went to the market in my lunchbreak and bought 2 pieces of fabric, one ivory and the other one gold colored, will see if I can use one of them for the borders. Now I first have to finish the 3th block, will keep you updated of my progress.
