I've kicked my MIL out a bunch of times! Every time for this very reason. By no means do you have to stand there and take it! Especially in your own home. You need to express your feelings with your husband and come to an understanding about how she treats you and what can slide and what can not. Then inform her that if she can not be civil and keep her opinions to herself, then she will not be welcomed in your home.
If she truly only ever criticizes you, chastises you, scolds you and blames you for things that are not really your fault, how is she not a bad person? If that is truly all she does, she doesn't really seem to ping any of the "Good Person" check list items. And your husband is terrified of her? But she's not a bad person? She raised him, right? So why would he be afraid of her if she was a good person? Stop rationalizing how you feel about someone who is draining the energy from you and your family. Get rid of her.
