    Sometimes enjoy the silence. Love, love, love pandora on my iphone! Something about quilting makes me want to listen to bluegrass or classic country mostly but can be found listening to the standards, classical, just about anything.

    I like music while I'm machine quilting... I like Pandora and my stations are pretty eclectic. But most afternoons I enjoy the quiet. My dh always has tv on when he's home at night. I'm not much of a tv watcher anymore although I do enjoy nfl football.

    I'd like to try audiobooks as I love to read. I'm not sure if I could concentrate on both though. I'm kind of a one task at a time person.

    Mostly listen to music. Soon it will be time for Christmas music...always look forward to getting out my Christmas cd's.
    Other time of year I listen to cd's, or turn on Pandora, pick an artist I like, and let the music play...always an interesting variety that way...especially when I do a mix of artists.

    I listen to christian rock on the radio-Air 1. It's all we listen to. No need to worry about language or content.

    I listen to the birds outside, the quiet hum of my sewing machine, the dogs playing, me grumbling when I make a goof, or maybe sometimes to the radio.

    I listen to audio books on my Kindle - or just soak up the silence of the house and have the freedom with my own thoughts. Both work great!

    It is often a book on CD or NPR on Saturday and Sunday afternoons/evenings. I am still working every day so my quilting time is limited. When free motion quilting it is music. I was told that it helps and I found that it does.

    Wisconsin has a wonderful public radio station. Classics all the way. I've been in other states and could not find such a station. Their public stations did not do classics.

    In the winter time, I sometimes do my scrappy quilts on the big dinning room table at one end of the living room. When my husband gets a good story going on Public TV, I watch long enough to get to know the characters, and then I sew while they talk. That way I loose all the sight gags. LOL

    Generally, when I'm quilting on my dsm I need some music that makes me tap my foot and keep the pace like some Rolling Stones and rocknroll. When I'm piecing, depends on the project - sometimes it's Netflix or one of the 20+ stations that I've saved to Pandora.

    How would I find the classic country station on the computer? I usually have the cooking channel on or house hunters just because I don't have to focus on them.

    Audio books is such a great idea - mostly l put on old John Denver record albums (yes, records...remember those?) But I think I'll try an audio book next.

    Classics if I'm concentrating, they are soothing. A good dose of girl band 'Bond' when I want something lively, but usually the wonderful tones of Andrea Boccelli

    I'm the opposite of your mom. When I'm sewing or ironing, I'll have both the radio on in the kitchen (which is next to my sewing studio) and the tv on in the family room (which is off the other side of my sewing studio). So while I'm sewing I can hear the radio and while ironing I can watch tv!
    Go forth and sew!
