Slow Stitching - floral book marks

I have worked up some bookmarks for slow stitching.  I first dug through my scraps and found some blue that would do sky, green that would do landscape and brown for the ground.  I trimmed them to size and overlapped them to get approximately 5" x 7".  I pinned them and stitched several lines of running stitch with coordinating thread before adding a row of stitching that overlapped and sealed the raw edges.  That was a few days of stitching.  Next, I dug out scraps again and chose some bright ones to create my flower shapes.  I pinned those into place and have used black thread to outline them as I stitched them into down.  Looking forward to working on the other two.   Therese
