    Nothing!! It is MY time to myself for peace and quiet which is why I enjoy my sewing so much. I do love hearing the birds outside. I still work full time, take care of elderly parents and so this is my break!

    My husband has introduced me to Pandora internet radio. I've set up stations of music for all types of genre's (sp). Usually ambient in the mornings, folk/indie in the afternoons, occassional 40's through 90's. If I'm in a grumpy mood I have my "All Metal Boy Bands" (he he he).
    Its an awesome internet service.

    Very diverse tastes in this household!

    And I can't believe Dr. Laura is still on!! Our network dumped her the day after 9/11 happened and she hasn't been back since :D
    You all gave me some great ideas THANKS!! :D
    Yeah, Librivox is great and FREE!!!!!!!!
    I have a subscription to Audible but not sure if it's worth the fee every month. We'll see........ I did get some of my all time fav audiobooks so that's good.
    The Yankees supercede everything for me though when they play day games. I get them on my laptop and bring it up to my sewing room :thumbup:
    Can you download audio books from your library onto the computer or an MP3 player? That is what I do and it is free once you have the MP3 player and they aren't expensive anymore. I have always gotten a good price on ebay.
    MI, yes I can. It's just like borrowing a book but the good part is after the 28 days they just delete the title from my library card. I put them on my Ipod..
    Awesome!

    Oh NHSOMND,

    when DH is home I try not to listen....(to his tv shows, lol!)
    When I am home alone, I listen to mostly today's country music, some pop, soft rock :-D
    Once in a while I will watch a comedy while sewing. I tend to associate the feeling I have while making a quilt with the finished product. I'd rather be laughing or singing ;-)

    So funny, Lots2do! That is my response. I listen to my thoughts more often than the radio.
    LOL...someone once asked me in chat, where I was, after I hadn't said anything for several minutes...
    my reply: "in my own little world." :shock: - :lol:

    Mostly Santana. Stevie Ray Vaughn & John Lee Hooker. Like the blues & the mellow sounds of Carlos. Also Earl Thomas Connelly- The Essentials.

    I like to listen to country gospel or just country music. I'm afraid to turn the TV on get distracted and sew or cut my finger off. But that's me there are probabley women that can do both....How talented!

    This was a great question and I am going to love the radiolovers.com website! I just discovered Pandora as a free app on my IPhone and listen to the Bubblegum DooWop list or the Broadway list.

    I listen to audiobooks on my MP3 player (love that my library has downloadable audiobooks for checkout), or nothing.

    Just like you I listen to old and new American country and folk music in my CD and tape collection when I am stitchin away. But when I really have to concentrate I like just my own company, nothing else. I also love the many BBC phone-in programmes we get here in Britain, they are very entertaining sometimes.

    I listen to the rhythm of my machine and enjoy watching pattern take shape; thoughts of other things to make - a waste of electricity if only half listening to radio or tv and less chance of making mistakes because of being distracted!!

    I listen to books on tape while I am actually quilting. When I am planning, I need silence. When I am cutting or piecing, I play music, whatever fits the mood of the day.

    I went today for my stress test and they had these oldies playing and when the test was over I asked her what she had playing and she said Pandora on the internet. I came home and I have listened too golden oldies all evening since I got back. Can't seem too add other kinds of music for some reason. I had Under the Board walk and Charlie pride both playing at the same time. Had too delete both programs and go back too this station for the golden oldies
