Hi all!

I have a very dear friend who is Jewish and lives in Israel, and I'd like to do a cross-stitch for her.  My idea is to do the first letter of her name (lamed) in a wreath of flowers. Is this ok and appropriate?  I'd rather not make something offensive!  Also, are there any inappropriate colors that I should be aware of?  I was thinking of using black for the character and purple and blue for the flowers.  thanks in advance for any advice you have!  Smiley

Im not as knowledgeable as some around here but I know that for my in-laws I have to make sure there is no mixing of wool and cotton ..
which in embroidery is easy.
My husband (who is also from Israel) cousins are ultra -orthodox and he couldn't see a problem with such a gift he also points dont be offended if your friend gets your cross-stitch shatne tested..some people wont take *anyone's* word about the linen/wool thing, just to be ultra "safe".

All cotton and you will be good. Nothing offensive about your design. I think it is a lovely gift.

It's really sweet that you took the time to think of this and make sure she will be able to appreciate your gift!
