What is your favorite past time while stitching? Do you just enjoy silence, listen to music/audiobooks or do you "watch" TV/movies? Do you have specific favorites you listen to/watch while stitching?
I generally like to have the stereo on during daytime stitching: Lots of Celtic music such as The Corries, Eric Duncan, Isla Grant, Margaret Stewart, The Wyndbreakers... Lord of The Rings, Bagpipes, Pibroch, Celtic Harp... Also, Stevie Nicks, Moody Blues... nothing jarring or intrusive. No, I don't find bagpipes to be either!
At night, we have the TV on to History or Discover Channel. That's okay with me, too.
