Couching Foot

Today's new adventure is using my couching foot.  I am using DMC#5 with Bottom Line in the needle and the bobbin.  The Bernina video I watched said to lower the feed dogs.  I did not.  It is working just fine. I am burying the vein threads after each petal.  I drew the stitching line on the petals with Roxanne's Silver chalk pencil.  I am hoping to get this quilt done in the next couple of days,  I went to Ben Franklin's and found my backing fabric.  The batting is being quilted as I stitch on the appliques so I think I will sandwich and quilt the backing to the other two layers with some embroidery stitching.  I am trying to decide what stitch or stitches to use.  I think I will use some silk ribbon stitching for the violets.  I will ponder as I couch.  Yeah for couching foot.,,,,so so easy.
