    I am addicted to old radio shows - found a website that you can listen for free - the old dramas and mysteries are my favorite. Otherwise, I like to listen to talk radio while quilting sometimes I just plug in a movie and listen to it. Time flies while I am having fun...

    What's the website, Otis? I like to listen to audiobooks, if my project is pretty "mindless," music if I need to concentrate more. I also like podcasts by The Moth--short stories that the authors perform, autobiographical.

    I'm a country music fan and an HGTV addict so I can tune in to either when I'm sewing away!

    Our new house didn't give me an antenna wire in my sewing room so my handy hubby is running a line from our bedroom (next door) to my sewing room. For some reason the master bedroom had two hookups.

    the voices in my head? Sorry, couldn't resist. Sometimes nothing, sometimes a favorite CD or the radio.

    I listen to Lost on NetFlex :) No need to really pay attention - I have seen them all so many times - but it is more for noice in the back ground. Every so often I get pulled into it then back to quilting!

    I listen to murder mysteries audiobooks through Audible. I listen to ones that are humorous. Kind of like Evanovich. "Sex, Murder and a double Latte", "I Dreamed I Married Perry Mason" and "Solomon and Lord" Those are some of the ones that I did...most of them I have "read" most of the series.

    They are mindless but pass the time.

    So funny, Lots2do! That is my response. I listen to my thoughts more often than the radio.

    I like to listen to country music--old country music 70,80 90, or I put in an old well loved movie that the pictures just come to mind as I hear it. I will play one movie over and over all day!

    You beat me to it. I listen to myself breathing and the pleasant sounds of the sewing machine. (And maybe the central A/C running).

    Instrumental/vocal. "Just the right sound."

    Usually just my hubby asking "are you sewing again?"

    When I'm home alone or cramped in the bedroom, I listed to a variety of pop/rock music. Tina Turner is great to FMQ to!

    So far I've been working my way through the box set of Jeeves & Wooster. I generally put a DVD in that I've watched before so that I don't get too sucked in to the story.

    Cheers, K

    I have my little player/radio sitting beside me at the machine, but I forget to turn it on or put a cd in it. I love Southern Gospel Music, Country Music, Old Heavy Metal, Easy Listening.....not hard to entertain. If it is really rockin' I get carried away and sew everything, my shirt in the mix, hahahaha.

    Blessings,
    Ruth

    ditto. I very seldom have any radio/music on when I sew. I just have great conversations with myself. I always get a great answer that way.

    I usually sew in silence. It's so relaxing to have no noise at all other then the sewing machine and my dog snoring.
