Miles of Tiles

Jun 3


There are twelve new backgrounds available today. I don’t usually do such big updates, but by adding these latest images I’m hitting a milestone: 300 patterns. I can’t believe I’ve made this many. Admittedly some are pretty crap but I’m talking quantity today, people.

Anyway, here we go again. Click on an image below for the full repeat, or see all 300 here.

Many thanks to all the readers of this blog. I could not have made it this far without the encouragement and feedback I’ve received over the years.

Emperor Commodus Finds Something Better to do with his Thumbs

Emperor Commodus, in Another Life

May 21

Another embroidery!
It’s called "Emperor Commodus Finds Something Better to do with his Thumbs." It’s supposed to look reasonably like Joaquin Phoenix in the movie Gladiator, but much like the real Joaquin Phoenix, this embroidery turned out to be difficult to work with. In the movie, Emperor Commodus gets to decide whether a gladiator lives or dies by pointing his thumbs up or down, so I figure he should use his thumbs for good instead of evil and just hitchhike to San Francisco.
He’d fit in in San Francisco. He’s already kind of has flowers in his hair, and historically the city has been tolerant of crazy, self-proclaimed emperors.

Sorry for the kind of lame picture of it- it’s 10 inches across (my largest embroidery yet) and it won’t fit on my scanner.
So there you have it.
