    I love to listen to music while I am quilting and I go through stages depending on mood :shock: right now it is nothing but Michael Buble! I am in love with him and his new CD. I am part of his fan club... :oops: :wink:

    But some of my other favorites are the Mamma Mia sound track and Colby Cailat. What are you listening to right now? what gives you inspriation?

    I seldom listen to music, but I listen and watch a lot of PBS where I travel the world, learn new recipes, quilting/sewing shows, home improvements and I watch a lot of movies too...

    My MP3 Player had all kinds of music , which I listen to when I am working on quilts outside. Inside I listen to TV, as it watches me quilt :wink:

    I listen to nothing while I sew which is strange because I can't crochet or do hand embroidery unless there is a good show on TV. Maybe quilting doesn't leave me with enough brain cells left over to listen!

    I usually have my tv on for some background noise while I am sewing. What am I listening to? NCIS, CSI, some sort of home show, Nick at Night...depending on what time it is.......most people know I don't sleep lol

    If I listen to music quilting it is 50-60's, hard rock or classicals. Depends on my mood and sometimes I am very moody, LOL.

    I don't have a radio, MP3, or a TV in my sewing room, haven't watched TV in years, don't get a radio station where we are, plus I wouldn't have room for anything anyway, but I would go with maryye, old country, jazz

    I'm with Loretta, 'cause I too don't have time to read. With three kids, I've gotten so used to interruptions that I've developed a very short attention span (I wonder if anyone else has this problem).

    My favorite is an old cassette recording of "I Heard the Owl Call My Name".

    But when I want music, it's variety: Native American flute when I need to be calmed, Ecuadorian Inca music when I need to wake up, oldies or country or folk or environmental sounds (thunderstorms or surf or crickets).

    I love to listen to a book while I quilt. www.audible.com has a great selection of books.
    Cathy Miller, also known as The Singing Quilter has a wonderful group of Quilting songs. She has done a lot of research on various quilts and quilters and has written songs about them.
    Here is the link to her site: http://www.singingquilter.com

    I have to have music!! I'm pretty eclectic in my choices but mostly listen to classic rock--gotta love the Eagles, Bob Seeger, Jackson Browne, Janis Joplin, Carly Simon, etc. I listen to the same CD over and over again until DH yells up the stairs "change that #$#@ CD for heaven's sake". I guess I also play it really loud lol!!!!!

    Sinatra as a rule, sometimes Kenny Loggins or Bon Jovi. But mostly Sinatra, the chairman of the board.

    Yesterday was strangly enough Michael Buble also :) but today since I am working on a holiday tube table runner its .. the dreaded way to early.. Christmas music and I don't care. No one but me here so it sure isnt going to bother me.. I can sew to anything and usually sing then too as well the music is up loud to hear over the machine and well the machine is pretty loud so none of my neighbors ever have to listen to me.. works for all of us!
