Too Many WiPs?

Is it possible to have too many WiPs?  I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by my to-do list!  The problem is I can't decide what I want to work on next...  I've just started cutting into this beautiful pile of fabric from Connecting Threads.  It's called Hello Sunshine by Virginia Odien. 

I ordered this as a kit way back in September.  Right after that I got busy with other projects, and never got started on this one.  It seems like a perfect project to work on this summer.  I'd better get a move on!

But then there are my Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks!  I started working on these a block at a time to use up scraps from my stash after I discovered the Scrappy Trip-Along idea on so many other blogs.  It's  a great project for a busy person who just wants to make a block or two every now and then and doesn't have a deadline.

Of course, I also joined the And Sew On BoM over at Quiet Play and have loved making those blocks each month.  It's time for June's block.  I've got my paper patterns all cut out and ready to go, just have to start matching up the fabric for them. 

Here is May's block:

I'm sure you're wondering what the problem is!  That's only three WiPs...  But, actually, there are way more than that!  I have several UFOs that are either in block form or completed tops that need to be finished, too!  They've been hanging around for way longer than these three, but somehow the newer projects are calling more loudly to me.  Maybe I'll just do a little on each one.

I am loving the New Blogger's Blog Hop over at Plum and June.  Maybe that's part of my problem with WiPs...  I keep getting inspired to try something new!  Today I'm linking up with Lucy at Charm About You for the Let's Get Acquainted Monday Link Up.

I feel the same way! Start too many and need more time to sew!
