Where did all my crafting time go?

I know lately I have been slacking on the craft posts. I was going strong for a while there. I have at least 15 projects in the works. I just don't seem to have the time right now to get it done, or when I do get home I'm exhausted. Summer is quickly approaching, which means even more things for me to do. Is it just me, or is anyone else having this problem?

Here are a few of the things that I'm working on right now.

This desk is eventually going to be my sewing/crafting desk. It needs to be painted and knobs for the drawers. Right now it's being used to dry out laundry on.

This was and still is a gardening table. I was thinking about turning it into a  baker's rank, but know I think I might finish it and leave it as my gardening table. I don't know lol. 

This was an old hutch top with lighting below and 2 shelves. Well you only see one right? That's because I tore the top shelf off. I need to use some wood filler and paint. Soon it will be a bench for my front porch.

This was a God awful ottoman that I found along the side of the road. It had some dirty & ugly fabric covering the whole thing. I painted the bottom grey, and have the cushion inside to re-cover. It's one of my favorite "in the works" project.

See all those pants? Those are my son's pants that need hemmed, and have been there for  5 months now. I might just wait and see if he grows into them now. That cushion in the background is for my ottoman. 

This is a quilt in the works. It's for my baby brother's graduation present. My mom is making it for him. I'm sewing the batting on for her, and then she is going to finish the rest. I think once it's all put together that I'm quilting too, but I'm not sure.
Okay so today I have to get 4 orders made, packaged, and ready to ship. I also need to sew the batting on Tyler's quilt since he graduates June 2nd. Then I also have to make some flower clips and hair ties for children in Africa. A mom and daughter at our church are going to Africa on a mission trip in June. They asked the church members for things that these kids need. These are orphans and even double orphans. I don't know how many I'm going to make, but I'll figure it out as I go.

Along with that I also have a dress that I need to put together, shorts that need patched [mine and Nick's], 2 new products to make for my shop, decorate the house for summer, move the dining room around, finish hanging picture in Nick's room, and the list goes on.

What do you have in the works? Do you feel like your crafting time is limited lately too?
