My name is Wendy Morri and the items on this site are hand made by me.  I will make craft to order.  You can usually you will find me every Friday at 10:30 at Westbury-on-Trym Country Market.  However, as the market is currently closed due to COVID-19, for now, use my Contact Page.

COVID-19 Update 1st April 2020
Due to the corona virus all outside events have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.  While I'm sad not be seeing people at market it is giving me some breathing space to get on with all the lovely craft that I've been unable to get to over the last couple of years.

If you want something made then this is the time to order it.  I'll be turning things around much more quickly and the post is still working.

Also if you need any help of advise I'm only an email away so use my contact form.

If you are bored and need something to do yourself take a look at the WoT Village Show Website as the classes are on for the show and there is lots of exciting things you could be doing for the show in September and as I write this the show is still on.

Give me a theme and I will make a uniquely crafted item for you.  Whether it's a gift for someone else or something for yourself these items will be treasured.

My main lines are miniature teddy bears and boxes but I also make jewellery, love pyrography and will make anything that is fabric based.

Completing UFOs!!!! 

I'm sure that all crafters have a pile of unfinished craft projects.  I'm no different and as I love to learn something new the pile of unfinished craft can grow faster than the completed ones.  I try now to only start something new once I've completed one from the UFO pile - i.e. one in one out.  Otherwise I have to complete anything new I start and not add another one to the pile of part made items.

I have 2 quilts on the go at the moment.  Both were due to go into the Bristol Quilters Exhibition in May.  This has been delayed from this year to May 2021.  I now have plenty of time to finish those and one in planning for a new baby due in August.


2020 Corona Frog Quilt

This is the quilt I'm working on right now.

The pattern is based on traditional drunkards path panels but with a twist to turn them into frogs.  They now all have eyes and I'm busy hand quilting the quilt.

It appeals to my love of frogs.  This quilt will go into the Bristol Quilters exhibition in May 2021


This quilt top has been on a bag for 3 years.  It has a twin that I finished straight away but put off the second one because I couldn't face getting down on the floor again to sandwich it.  Every Winter I promise myself I'll get it out and quilt it.  With COVID-19 and with 4 4" tables making the job vastly more pleasant I've sandwiched it at last and it is ready to quilt.

I'll get on with this one once the frog quilt is finished.




This Cushion came out of a workshop given by Westbury Park Quilters.

This one is stained glass and appealed to my love of bias bars


A patchwork Cushion based in flying Geese in rainbow colours.  The pattern is wonderul to work with as it is foundation pieced and therefore the points are perfect every time (why do quilters worry so much about points?)

A won't part with this one.  It went into the Westbury Park Quilters exhibition and is now in my lounge.  



Robins for the Christmas Tree.  I think these are cute

I've sold loads of them in aid of the St Peters Hospice at their annual Christmas Sales every November.  I'm there every year in the Craft Stall with a whole table of items made and donated by a huge number of carfters.



Another UFO started years ago and finished in 2017.  This one went into the 2017 Bristol Quilters exhibition tombola.

Another Baby Quilt.  All of these have been donated to the local hospital.  They are given to each of the premature babies.

 September 2016

I bought this Blackwork Kit in Edinburgh at least 3 years ago.  I knew once I started it I wouldn't be able to put it down.  I completed it over the Winter and entered it into the Westbury on Trym Village show

Much to my delight it got a First.

May 2016

I've made 2 quilts that are destined for the Bristol Neo-natal unit.  These little quilts are used to brighten up the cots of these tiny new babies.

The first quilt are a mother and baby polar bear on an ice flow.  The colours of the sky are meant to represent the northern lights.  The quilting highlights the bears and there are wavy lines in the sky and ice.

Helen lent me a book that inspired both quilts.



The quilts 2 layers of cotton material that will allow them to be hot washed and have no wadding,   The corners are rounded. There is minimal machine quilting - just enough to hold them together. Both quilts are bagged through.

I reversed the penguin pattern so that they would face eachother.  Fabric choice was important and this fabric looks like bubbles in the water with snow falling.

March 2016

My first attempt at bobbin lace making.

New skills keep tempting me.  The latest is lace making - started thanks to a course run by Bristol Lacemakers and a lucky find of a lace making cushion and bobbins in a charity shop.



 I bought the kit to make the 3 bears house at the quilt festival in Birmingham in 2013.  I thought it would be straight forward and I'd have it done by Christmas.  How wrong could I be.  I eventually completed it in January 2016.  I hope to enter it into this years WOT Village Show

This a a cross stitch of John Wayne that I  stitched in sepia for my older sister's birthday. It took me 3 years to complete.

He now greets you as you come in through the front door in her hall.

I completed a second one this year in black and white of Cliff for my younger sister's birthday.  A lovely picture of a young Cliff in Summer Holiday.

   This little bird is hand embroidered and made of silk

I finished this cushion kit I bought in New Zealand in 2011.  It is appliqued and hand quilted.  I've pulled the kit out a number of times and then put it to one side again.  However, once I got started I couldn't put it down and finished it in 3 days.

It was displayed at the Bristol QuiltFest in May 2014.

At Centre Parks in Longleat in November 2014. I attended a Silk Painting Workshop run by Jennifer Douglas.  What a lovely lady and a thoroughly enjoyable and well run course.  You can see that by how successful my resulting peacock looks.  Very inspiring and a craft that I would like to do again.

I've completed this double sampler quilt that had been in progress for 5 years.  It charts my progress in patchwork and quilting from my very first work.  I have my Mum, Gladys Jones, to thank for helping me throughout the making of this quilt.  It is hand quilted and when I began to run out of steam my Mum also quilted some of the panels for me.

It is a 'quilt as you go' project and contains a number of traditional panels as well as some I designed myself.  Some panels are hand pieced and others are machine pieced.
