Gulf Shores hat - finished 7-12-08
I showed her the Abydos, too, and she didn't really say anything nice about it either!
I must add that this took place in front of some friends of the family, who also couldn't muster up anything nice to say.
I usually feel that my mom has very good taste, so I am feeling really hurt by this, especially on top of the fact that I got NO compliments (apart from the one I had to fish for) when I wore my Abydos the other day. I feel like I must suck at this. I mean, I know my crocheting skills are OK, but now that I've branched out into things other than scarves and potholders, no one seems to like any of it except my Ravelry peeps--and as much as I trust their judgment and feel flattered by their compliments, the lack of in-person compliments makes me feel like crap. :*(
Has anyone else had something like this happen? Please tell me I'm not the only one...
I think I am going to stop showing my mother any of my crochet projects.
