Tasha Tudor 1915-2008, a Legacy
Tasha Tudor passed away yesterday, very sad for her admirers although she certainly lived a full life. Her accomplishments are astounding. She was an independent hard worker striving for the simplicities in life and determined to live them. She never wavered and allowed worldly influence to crash in on her simple ways. Hardly simple I should say because she lived with meager means by choice. Family, books (as an author and illustrator), gardening and handwork were her joy. Surely everyone has a Tasha Tudor book in their home! Her hands were always busy with chores or relaxing to handwork with thread, fiber and fabric. Her popular and of course simple Truly Tasha Shawl is here.
