Ravelry FO RSS feed

I use WP-o-matic, a third party WordPress plugin, to add my finished Ravelry projects to this blog (and then the LiveJournal plugin to copy the posts to my LJ). Unfortunately, though, this always causes a problem when I ‘Finish’ more than one project in a day on Ravelry. One example os today when I have finished three projects on Ravelry but only two of them have reached my blog here and my LJ. I have posted a “Help” request over on Ravelry:

Some of my FOs do not appear on my FO RSS
Some of my FOs (e.g. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/natalieford/waterfall-pat… – it is on the feed now but BEFORE other FOs and so does not make it onto my blog) don’t seem to appear on my FO RSS (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/natalieford.rss?status=fi…) in order of creation and last modified / completed.
This is a problem for me because I use that RSS feed to populate my blog and the blog plugin just slurps the latest item on the RSS if it has not already done so. It will not slurp older items even if it does not have them. I am sure that this is because I tend to complete more than one project at a time on Ravelry because I consider a project finished once it is photographed and the Ravelry project is complete.
Am I missing something in how I define my projects? Help? How can I force FOs to appear on the RSS with the last “Finished” project on Ravelry at the top of the RSS other than by only ever completing a rav project once per day?

I even tried to make sure it all worked by running the WP-o-matic after I ‘Finished’ each project on Ravelry but still only two of the three appeared here.

Time to hand-mash a post for the third/missing project…

I use the LJ notification emails to remind me to make these posts and so I apologise if I miss anyone's birthday - I likely did not get that email for whatever LJReason or you may not have your birthday on your LJ userinfo page. Also, if there are multiple LJ names on this post, two or more of them might belong to the same RL person.
