  2. I feel like there has to be potential in the "by the pricking of my thumbs" line, since I constantly prick my fingers when I'm embroidering...

  3. How about "One Thread To Late".

  4. What about 'The Unraveling of the Threads' and the mystery could unfold backwards. xx

  5. I just bought her newest one last night. I love to sit under a blanket and enjoy these cozy mysteries ;)
    I think a good name would be
    " A Hoop of Danger".
    Good luck everyone!

  10. I borrowed the first book from my local library after reading about it here on your blog. I am looking forward to the second. There have been some great titles mentioned! How about Through the Eye of the Needle...

  11. Some great suggestions above, silly things pop into my head like "Chain, Loop and Stinker" or "Hoop-law". Thanks for the link though. I love a good mystery and I'll add these two to my list.

  16. I'm so sorry I'm even sillier than usually, I read your post so quickly that I forgot the original title instantly and thought it's my own clever idea -- well, how about Stitch in the Night, then? (I had to re-read all the comments to be sure I didn't unconsciously steal that one, too!)

  17. Murder on the Diagonal
    Bricked Over
    Double Crossed
    French Noosed
    Fish Boned

    This is a lot harder than I thought it would be!!

  19. Okay, now that's a hard one! I don't think I'm very good at coming up with quirky, punny titles but I'll give it a shot! How about "The Stitch that would not Die", "Crewel Murder" or "A Hoop Full of Trouble"? Not very good, I know!

  20. Hey! Look at that handsome fox :)

  21. "Crazy like a french knot" LOL French knots make me mad!!!! :p

  22. Wonderful giveaway!! I'm really bad in thinking about titles, nicknames, etc... Stitch to Death...

  23. I'm rubbish at this sort of thing too, but 'point of the needle' or 'drawing the thread'

  24. What a fun give a way - a title for a book - hmmm " A Deadly Thread"
