Hello all,

Just found out about http://pattern8.com/ -- a site where they put up fantastic pattern pieces, which are designed to repeat when tiled. Check it out, their pictures are worth (at least) a thousand of my confusing words :-)

PLEASE be sure to carefully note their terms of use. I believe they mainly don't want you distributing their exact patterns, or claiming it as your own, but if you make something *with* their patterns, it's cool. Read carefully, anyway!

I get a big kick out of taking these and manipulating them in various ways to make desktop backgrounds. But I'm sure our clever crew will find lots of great uses!
