    In my sewing room I sometimes have Martha Stewart on if I think about it at the right hour. I thought I would listen to music but that doesn't seem to happen. Most often it's quiet. My daughters and husband like noise. I get tired of it after a while. I grew up in a very quiet house. That's probably why I like the silence.

    I sometimes have a spanish program on, trying to train my ears. Most of the time either music or a podcast from the states. but I have put on a movie and completely forgotten to pay any attention to it at all.

    I usually have music with my iPod on random play, trust me that is fun, I have an interesting mixture of music on that thing from classical to current, celtic, spanish guitar and everything in between.

    I used to like listening to the birds in my garden but sadly I no longer have any. A couple years ago a lady bought the house next to me and she has a voracious cat who has driven all the birds away. My birdbath now languishes forlorn in the garden with no visitors.

    Aaaaw Lynn, no birds any more That is so sad. Bad, bad cat

    What a diverse lot we are and what a great survey. I listen to talking books from the library - have just about read them out now tho'. Might have to try out some of the other ideas here.

    I also have the TV on. Usually it is something I have already seen. I seem to need some background noise

    I like to put country music on my radio. I have a lot of CD's so they get played a lot. When I downstairs hand-sewing, then the TV is usually on but I don't pay much attention to it. ..... I never do except certain shows that I like.

    Most of the time, I have CNN on, sometimes I will listen to country music on GAC (Great American Country) while I sew during the day. If I'm sewing at night, the house has so much noise that I dont need the tv or radio. I just need noise! lol
