    I love Indian flute music, western and classical music when I am creating on any of my projects.

    If I don't have tv on for the background noise I will have my POLKA music (waltz, two-step etc.) Sometimes I will have both going. In the sewing room itself there are two websites that have my music 24/7 :)

    Yes, anything from The Beatles to George Jones, ZZ top to Luciano Pavarotti, and everything in between. Music makes the world a better place.

    I have only satellite Serius radio. We live pretty far from town. It's classical for me. Keeps me calm.

    I love to listen to classical, popular classics, easy listening, etc, etc. and I also like to have the TV on with a good movie or program.

    Once I actually saw a movie and realized I had "seen" it in my mind while sewing... it was just as good....did that make sense???

    Makes a lot of sense, I "watch" t.v. like that. No clue what these people look like, but know which voice goes with each character.

    Has anyone tried the Great Courses on CD? I figured I could improve my mind (what little there is left) as I stitch. Haven't ordered any yet. Just checking to see if they are worth it. ♥

    Glad to hear from another Daniel O'Donnell fan who quilts! He is soooo good and Mary Duff is a treat to listen to also. Where are you from in Minnesota?

    I like it to be very silent. The only time I listen to music is when my neighbour on the right plays his Patsy Cline and Rosemary Clooney type records (which are easy to take), in order to drown out the annoying sound of the horse races and football that my neighbour on the left likes to listen to.(I generally wear ear-muffs when the stereo sound gets too much)...

    10 pages and so far no one else who listens to progressive or hard rock, lol.

    I prefer books on tape (CD) from the library but I also listen to music (as noted above) or listen to TV. I don;t have the cable run to my sewing room so I can only watch TV on the local channels.

    Yes, I have a bunch of them...The CDs work best, I think.
    They are wonderful. Just finished "Bizantium" It is the Christian history of Asia Minor (think Turkey) , the Middle East, and eastern Europe for 1200 years after Christ was alive.
    Curiously my favorite, so far, is "Chaos" which is about things that are not geometrical. Although it is a DVD it is good listening, from the next room.
    The good thing is that if you are interested in a topic, they will eventually get it for you!
    Just ask...I wanted American History from discovery to 1776, and they got it!
    The history of Languages is one,
    The history of English is another,
    I have the Metropolitan Museum in NY and the Louvre in Paris, both lots of pictures from their collections.
    Space explorations, medical stuff, about music,
    American and other pieces of world history, arts and philosophy are just some of their lecture series.
    Some of them are 24 lectures, others more, others less.

    My 1st preference is books on CD from the library which I load onto my iPod and then TV. My radio doesn't want to get good reception in my sewing room....I also have the laptop in there when necessary.

    Yes ! It is his biography on a CD from the library.
    It is fascinating!
    (Sorry I spelled it wrong)
    It is sooo different than you think.
    He took off years away from the public and lived on the income from his music.
    Together with his wife, he loved his kids, and was a full time parent...aparently, they spoiled the kids when they were little. Those years, he tried to avoid any public life and was very unhappy about the myths that grew up around his image, which of course made it worse.
    I haven't finished it yet....
