 Mark one for "Garden of Delights:Charted Patterns..." 
  First bit very "period" in feeling, while the second bit tells us exactly
what it is!

Subject: [HNW] last vote for title!

Firstly, I feel so stupid that I couldn't come up with a winning title for 
my own book. <sheepish look>

Next: Honorable Mentions

"The New Exemplar" (thanks, Carllein!)
"A Cabinet of Gems: Sundry Jewels for the Needle" (thanks, Ianté)

These are wonderful titles-- I may replace "The Goodwyn Miscellany" with one

of them.  It's just that I really wanted a flower/garden theme for the 
title, since the patterns are all from "Flowers of the Needle"

While I really like "A Flower Garden for the Needle" (and it got a few 
votes, off list) it sounds much too similar to "Flowers of the Needle". 
Derivative is fine, but this sounds *too* similar.

I'm stuck at these two:

"A Garden of Delights for the Needle: Charted Embroidery Patterns 1530-1567"

OR

"A Garden for the Needle: Charted Embroidery Patterns 1530-1567"

I realize these are very close, too. "A Garden of Delights for the Needle" 
seemed to tie with "A Flower Garden for the Needle" in votes.

I prefer "A Garden of Delights for the Needle" myself, but worry it's  too 
wordy??

Any votes, opions, etc?
