Put a gaelic Christmas greeting on this sweatshirt for a friend's birthday. Used metallic thread for the gold lettering. Hope you like it as much as she did.

That looks so nice and the placement is perfect. Thought you are game using Metalic thread for the lettering as it can be so tempermental. Well done.

Thanks so much. Yes, metallic thread can be challenging, and I have had some problems in the past. But the brand of thread I have been using for about 4 yrs now stitches beautifully.

Lovely work. I haven't seen the Gaelic greetings before but am used to Nadolig Llawen which is Welsh. Great piece of work

Thank you. Yes, there are several variations in gaelic that differ depending on the country and dialect.

Thank you. She did. Her family embraces their Irish heritage, so I thought this design would be nice for the holiday season.

Thank you. She did like it. I wasn't sure if I would lile the metallic thread on a sweatshirt like this, but now I think it is my favorite part. It really makes the lettering shine, and that makes it nice for the holidays.
