Do you find that having another distraction (music, movies, people to talk to) while stitching helps you make progress or make mistakes?
I have to have something on in the background whilst I stitch, preferably a movie. My DVD collection continues to grow and its nice to put on something I've watched several times before, so I don't have to keep looking up! I can just look up for my favourite parts ;o))) Alternatively its nice to have some relaxing music on in the background. I couldn't stitch & chat - I would find it too distracting! Although I do have girlie days with my best friend where we put on some movies, stitch & chat.... I don't ever get as much done as I'd like to though.
