Her death saddens me, but I'm grateful for her life.
The Tasha Tudor Museum has a website. They are raising money and hope to open the museum by 2010.
I saw the news in The Independent, which begins:
Tasha Tudor was the illustrator of nearly 100 children's books. The rural settings of the past were a constant inspiration in her artistic work and eventually led to her living the life of a 19th-century farmer herself. When not writing or painting, she spun and wove flax into cloth, sewed her own long dresses, milked her Nubian goats and worked barefoot in her teeming vegetable and flower gardens. In time this well-publicised lifestyle turned her into something of an icon of alternative living.
