Shabby Roses bookmark

Last month I made a Shabby Roses bookmark for Mary, it is designed by Jennifer Reynolds. I did the embroidery with 2 threads of red stranded DMC 498 in backstitches and some French knots. I used the ‘boerenhemdensteek’ for the edge, but I don’t know the English name for it!And my thumb is much better, I can hold a needle again! Time to start the knotted buttonhole stitch tomorrow, I already saw a lot of great experiments.
