    What do you listen to when you quilt? Radio? TV? Silence? The purr of your machine?

    I prefer the purr of my machine and the quiet of living in the country.

    How 'about you?

    Sometimes quiet; sometimes a movie; sometimes the radio; mostly quiet.

    I love to listen to books on my Ipod. Since I never have time to sit and read, this is the best alternative.

    Mostly silence, but sometimes radio KLOVE, some times TV or audio books. If I am embroidering, just the sound of my machine because that is all you can hear.

    I listen to the quiet of country living and our local classical music station. It puts me in the zone of peaceful creativity!
