She combines teaching and travelling having taught on cruise ships and accompanying likeminded people on international holidays. Wendy is best known for her work with wool applique. She uses wool felt to create colourful quilts featuring fun motifs such as flowers, animals and houses. Her work combines the use of embroidery and traditional patchwork to create contemporary quilts.
