Too many ‘irons in the fire’ – means, having a number of projects on the go at the same time.

Example; ‘He’s got too many irons in the fire at the moment’, meaning he has too many things going on at the same time.

If you add another ‘string to your bow’ means, you have obtained another skill.

Example, ‘Bob is a builder, but because of the economic crisis and little work in the building trade he decided to go to evening classes at college and took a teacher’s course adding another ‘string to his bow’.
