I used the stitches markers on the 1st motif and found it was so time consuming putting them in and then removing them as you crocheted in the spaces, I decided not to bother on the remaining motifs. Doing it on the 1st one did help because on the remaining ones, I kinda knew where the ch 1 spaces would be. It's a great tip though.
Insead of those little plastic stitch markers they sell for use in knit and crochet, I use alligator clips from radio shack. The price on them has gone up since the last time I bought some, but a pack of 12 is less than 3 dollars ( a good thing since I'm forever losing them, and my husband keeps stealing them to use for electronics...how DARE he!). They're great cuz they're spring-loaded and dead easy to take off and put on, and I can clip it to my clothes while crocheting without having to set down my work.
here's the pic from the radio shack site so you can visualize what I mean. this one is 1 1/4" long, but you can get them in different sizes:
