    One fewer excuse.

    I finally got the last part I needed to setup a streaming media server in my living room and a small media player in my loft sewing room/bedroom.

    No longer can I tell myself I have nothing to listen to while quilting.

    Got some major progress in on a brown stars and shirts quilt for the same bed. You can just see the media client setup in the top left.

    No excuses is right! Now you can sew & enjoy listening to your music/tv. Seems like I do much better when I have something to listen to even if it's just the "noise" of the tv.

    I am really old fashioned, I just have a good old radio to listen to or my more modern CDs.

    TV is too distracting for me when I am sewing, so I listen to the radio on my phone. Glad it works for you. Love your blocks.

    I like your use of various tan/brown strips. A great 'scrappy' coordinated look. Well done!

    Beautiful blocks. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I have always enjoyed access to media in my sewing room. It helps keep me from drifting away from work. I am sure you will enjoy the new setup. Those quilt blocks are great.

    I often listen to podcasts while I'm working on something that doesn't require a lot of thinking, like after I've done the math and am just cutting, or while I'm squaring up blocks. Otherwise I never have time to listen to them.

    Let me know if you need help on coming up with new excuses, I've got a few.
