Acadienne offers a large variety of lovely handmade needlework items

Acadienne on ArtFire.com creates OOAK hand knit, crocheted and embroidered items, all with her own personal touch, which shows in each lovely piece.  She's even offering free shipping (except on baskets) until Christmas.  This would be a great shop to find some wonderful handmade Christmas gifts in.  She says "I really am a female Acadian by heritage, on both sides, and moved to the desert from the northeast coast almost 26 years ago. Currently working night shift at a small elder care facility and have a lot of time to create my needlework. An equal number of items go to local charity each month, preemie clothes, dolls, and chemo hats. There aren't too many techniques I don't know how to do in needlework, including hardanger, and I almost never go anywhere without a project. I put my work down for church choir, work, and to drive my visually handicapped husband wherever he needs to go."  Not only is she a talented artist, but a caring, giving person as well.  Her shop is absolutely packed with wonderful items, and it wasn't easy to choose just a few!  You can click on any of the pictures below to go directly to the listing, and be sure to check out the entire shop while you're there!
