Tasha and her Corgi

While doing research for my Tasha Tudor Doll (in Memory) pattern, I found out what a truly outstanding woman she was. Here is a woman who created her own dream...her own life...and really lived it!
Ms. Tudor was born in 1915, but was sure she was reincarnated from 1830 being a wife of a sea captain.

Since she was a little girl, she knew her place was to live on a farm, surrounding herself with beautiful vintage gardens that grow freely, a weathered cottage, and a menagerie of animals, especially her beloved corgi dogs! Her love for times past carried her through her life. She hand-dipped her own candles, hand-sewed her clothing, was a great cook and gardener...and animal lover. Her favorites where her corgi dogs.

With all of this she also raised a family and wrote and illustrated over 100 children's books. These books hold the delicate remembrance of her and her love of the past.

Ms. Tudor was regarded as a renaissance woman although she looked to past for her inspiration. I personally am taken with her as a woman that lived her life bringing such beauty to the world while living life observing and enjoying the everyday small things.

This year, I have created one of Tasha's beloved Corgi dog...
This will be  technique new to this class. This little dog is dry needlefelted!
