Holiday Basket - Updated

So many people have had so many great ideas to round out the list for all 26 letters that I've updated the list to include many of them: 

“FILL YOUR HOLIDAYS WITH MUSIC” STASHDASH

So I'm wondering if I should be joining this dash since the Halloween one was such a spectacular bust for me. Don't get me wrong...I'm thrilled that I managed even a third of what I intended. Thanks for the inspiration. I'd love to finish my oldest WIP but I seem to have misplaced the pattern book. That would involve major sorting/cleaning up of book and yarn stash and craft areas. Sounds rather traumatic! But here I do...Send in the boys in uniforms if I don't resurface in a week... :)
