Can you have to much on the go?

Here is my latest update on the Garden of Semiramis. Less accomplished then I had hoped for, but can't do anything about that.

Part 1 half way done

The second Alphabet heart is almost finished
Alphabet Hearts

And I stitched also a bit on Manhattan
Week 07

Next month I have to step a bit on the breaks to be able to stitch a bit more on some smalls.
Semiramis won't come out of storage in June. The rest of May I will be back to "Coming to Water" and then I will give my full attention to a bookmark for Marjorie. And I'll figure out a decent time plan for several smalls I want to do.

- finishing off Marjories bookmark <- that's the very first thing to do, because that one has a deadline in June and I HATE it to be late.
- finishing off Donna's heart as heart ornament (all stitching already done)
- finishing stitching on the heart for my Father in law and framing it
- stitching and finishing off Donna's Angel - which is rather complicate but I finally figured out exactly how to do a three dimensional Angel. That took me a while btw...lol.
- I would also LOVE to participate in 2 exchanges...a Christmas ornament Swap at ILCS yahoo group and a "Summer House" exchange and HoE. But not sure if I can fit that in. We'll see ...lol.

Of course I won't be able to do all that above AND some work on Manhattan and Coming to Water in June, but I can make a dent in it and come up with a plan how to tackle it. (I hope...lol)

Ohhh....and there is a great give away on Carol R's blog. I love her idea. If you want to participate, hop over :)

OMG Gabi, where do I start?
Woo hoo, I am not alone on Semiramis!! Yours is stunning and I gotta know what that beautiful fabbie is. Both Manhattan and the Alpha heart are gorgeous and I am tickled that you are going back to Coming to Water. I *really* love watching your progress on it.

To answer the question in your post title... Absolutely (although that never, ever, seems to stop me!) lmbo

No, you never can. That way you don't get bored.Love the little top of the building appearing in Manhattan! Semiramis looks great, has some wonderful colors and your pick of material is fabulous! Nice job on the hearts...I really like that design.

Where to start....
Your WIP's look great as usual and love the colors in the heart.
Hope you can get everything you want to do in June done.
The ornament for the exchange doesn't have to be to me until late July so you should have time to do one (I HOPE)

Semiramis is looking wonderful. I know what an intense stitch that can be because my friend is working on that! Great start on Manhattan and I love the Alpha heart too!

I love that Garden Chair, the finishing scares me too much to attempt it, lol.
