Some Recent Felicities

Did you know (before I included a definition in my blog header) that felicity means "happiness"? When I chose to name my blog Felicity Quilts, I was going for the intentional double meaning: it's a blog about my quilting AND about the fact that this hobby truly makes me happy.

Anyhoodles, here are some quilty things that have made me happy in the last little while.

1. I GOT IN! Yippeee! I am excited and terrified and happy and worried that I've bitten off more than I can chew. All natural reactions to getting into one of the (in my opinion) best swaps on Flickr, I'd say.

2. I got tagged. Twice! The lovely AJ and the lovely QuiltyGirl (Nikki) both tagged this here blog with a blog award.
Intended to recognize the "smaller" blogs without lots of followers (i.e. fewer than 300), the Liebster Blog award is a way to get the word out about blogs you may not have heard of, but are worth checking out.
By accepting the award/tag, you commit to tagging 3 to 5 other blogs. Without further ado, I am happy to introduce you to:

BlueberryGabs Jody is a fellow Canadian which makes her awesome already, obv., and her blog is pretty cool, too. Check out the beginnings of a gorgeous FMF quilt.
Sleepytime Sewing Leigh does her sewing like me: during naps and after bedtimes, and I completely relate!
Katie's Korner This is a new to me blog that I discovered via Naptime Quilter's Workshop in Progress. Great photos, fun writing and fresh projects.
Pitter Putter Stitch Brooke's projects are lovely, and I really enjoy all of her wonderful process posts.

These nominations were like getting a big hug, and I am truly honoured - thank you AJ and Nikki!! Now all of you go check out those blogs! Go!


  1. I got into DQS10 too! Super excited!

    I wanted to tag you for one of my Liebster nominees, but I knew you'd already gotten it from A.J. : )

  2. How, how exciting that you got into the DQS10! I wanted to try to get in a few swaps this year, but I knew that if I did, I would end up moving and not be able to fulfill the commitment. Maybe next year! Bees aren't really my thing, but I think swaps are super! :)

    And you're more than welcome for the nomination, you totally deserve it! And I didn't realize someone else beat me to it, great minds think alike. :)

  3. Congrats on DQS10! Have fun! So not surprised you were tagged - how lovely.

  4. I'm excited for you about DQS10! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

  5. Thank you so much!!! I blogged about the award today!


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
