    i listen to a vast variety of music while sewing---house of blues on sunday morning- country, instrumentals, classical, (what my adult kids call 'mood music'---relaxation/meditation discs), rock, sometimes i need the 'calm' sometimes i want something with alot of movement...always listening to something---i mainly own blues & country- a large stack of meditation & holiday/fun music...and i can go from radical-hard rockin or (head banging classical) to calm 'flutes by the sea' in a heart beat
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    I have my TV on all day long..Most times I am not even listening..can't even tell you what is on a lot---but the noise makes it less lonely when I am home all day alone.

    I listen to the radio, and programmes on my iPad that it records, namely The Archers, Gardeners Question Time, Farming today and Woman's Hour.Where do you all get your audio books from?

    I bring my Ipad into my studio and I listen to great christian radio or Bible teachings. Otherwise I listen to Josh Groban, IL Divo etc.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    You have a sewing building? As in a 2nd building that is just for sewing? I want pics!

    Personally I usually just listen to the radio. My machine is loud enough that sometimes I fear I would not hear an audiobook over it and get lost. With music it doesn't matter if I miss something.

    I always have on Food net work. I feel like I'm multi tasking that way. If something sounds good I look for the receipe.

    Depends on my mood. Some times I listen to music, the T.V. or I just like it quiet.

    I usually listen to faith music, sometimes country if I'm in the mood. Lately I've been listening to classic Christmas music (no Mariah Carey or Beyonce for me). I rarely watch tv because it takes too much concentration to follow the show plot.

    I very rarely listen to music when I quilt. When music is on I have a hard time sitting still haha. But I do love watching movies while I quilt.

    I listen to audiobooks on my iPod.

    Like the original poster since I got my iPod in July 2009 I
    have logged 1129 audiobooks NOT counting the new stack
    I just got from the library yesterday (12 in all), and what is
    on "request" that I am waiting to come in.

    I almost never listen to music anymore and haven't had the
    radio in my car turned on except for maybe 6 times since I
    got the iPod.

    In fact I have already worn 1 iPod out and hubby gave me his
    which he never used anyway.

    I love to multitask to a good book.

    I plug in the eclectic mix of music that is on my IPhone. Mostly a mix of classic rock and newer stuff that I like also. If I'm working on assembling blocks a lot of the time I prefer nothing because I want to concentrate. I like music on when doing the actual quilting. It seems to make it go faster.

    I also sing and don't care who hears it.

    Sometimes talk radio, sometimes classical music.
