Finish A Long, Quarter 4...what rolls over, what got added.

Well, to say that I have project ADHD would probably be an understatement.
I definitely suffer from "ooooo...shiny!" syndrome, also known as "SEW ALL THE QUILTS!" syndrome.  Sadly, there are not enough hours in the day to make all the things.

So, my list got longer.  A bit longer.  *cough* On it are a bunch of destined to be Christmas/holiday presents, as well as several swap items.
