With appreciation or, as Debbie Rowley of DebBee's Designs says, the recipient turns around and sells it at a garage sale? The solution, follow her tips to make a gift more "Acceptable" to the recipient: or learn to appreciate your own work and keep it for yourself!

She raises good points. I usually don't donate my stitching either. It is infuriating to spend money to make a project and have it sell for close to nothing.

But I have made thing for a few selected friends and they just love what I made for them and continue to display the items years later. that certainly makes you feel good.
