The definition of the word felicity is “intense happiness.”

That’s exactly what I feel when quilting with Felicity!  She’s not computerized like many machines available today, but that’s one of her charms.

Felicity is a Voyager 17 and runs on an Hinterberg wooden frame which I also find charming.
