I made it a rule years ago to not give anything I made to someone who I knew wouldn't appreciate it. It's just asking to get your feelings hurt. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who think "homemade" has no value.

My mom lives in another state so I send her photos of what I'm working on, which of course she always praises to the heavens, (some of us got lucky with moms). I also send WhatsApp messages to two of my sisters-in-law who love to do crafts. We send each other photos of our projects all the time. It's a great way to keep in touch and to get lots of encouragement.
