My iPod is packed full of music and it is an eclectic mix to say the least. There is my rather large indie playlist full of everything from Oasis to the Stereophonics to The Smiths and some Arctic Monkeys thrown in for good measure! There is also a Pop playlist with more poppy tracks in, a retro playlist with 60's and 70's hits (yes there is some Abba in there!) and the bellydance playlist for when I feel in a more ethnic mood! Any of these playlists may be chosen to accompany the hum of my sewing machine. However, when I am journaling I turn to my relaxation playlist which has much more calming music - some Enya, Loreena McKennit and more calm modern music to help me think.
These are rather a recent discovery of mine. There are currently 3 podcasts that I follow and download regularly.

TELEVISION AND FILMS
So as not to appear too unsociable in my home, I do try to spend some time downstairs with my husband. I like to be busy and find it very difficult to sit still (I even crocheted in the car on the way to Yorkshire last night!) So, I need crafts that I can bring downstairs and do on the couch. Art Journaling is not so good for this as there are lots of bits and mess involved! Crochet, on the other hand, is fantastic for this and so this is my couch/TV/Film craft of choice.
I would love to hear what you listen to when you craft and would appreciate any recommendations of podcasts I can add to my collection!
