A reader asked:
Do you listen to any podcasts?
Not too much. Even with headphones on, and especially without headphones on, my mind wanders while I’m quilting. Heck, my mind wanders when I’m not quilting! I used to listen to books on tape and then I’d have to go back and listen to them again because I only heard half of it due to my mind being on something else.
When quilting on the longarm, I usually stick my iPod in my pocket and use headphones or I’ll listen to XM Radio with a set of cordless, noise canceling headphones. If I’m home by myself, XM is on full blast without the headphones. I love Channel 13 (Willie’s Place) anbd 34 (old gospel music). Listening to music doesn’t require a lot of concentration or attention.
