I don't know if you are like me, but when I work with my hands, my mind wanders, and I often start thinking about things that I shouldn't be thinking about: things that happened at work that annoy me, what somebody said that was not very nice, the fact that I will eventually HAVE to go food shopping... You get the picture...
I get tired of listening to the radio (I love music but the ads and the chatter really get to me), so I was trying to think of a different solution to "entertain" myself while working. Then I got it : audio books!
Following my instinct, I did a internet search on audio-books. Many companies offer subscriptions, but well, I really did not want to pay for anything just yet- I wasn't sure I would love it-, so I searched for free audio-books.
I came upon this really cool website : librivox.org. This organization has volunteers record public domain readings (so, sorry, no New York Times best sellers...), and they are free for anyone to download.
I was thrilled to listen to Treasure Island, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and Tom Sawyer while sewing during the last couple of days.
I love to read and this is the next best thing!
In the meantime, these came out of the studio - infused with literary thoughts, no doubts:):
|iPad Messenger in Organic Brown Cotton with Organic Yellow Cotton Lining|
|iPad Messenger in Bedford Cord with Organic Cotton Lining|
|Waxed Canvas Tote with Leather Handles and Detachable Strap|
Have a wonderful week.
