 Okay.  So any of you out there that have been to my blog much before knew that this piece would be on the top of my list of hopeful finishes for 2012.  This is Peaceable Kingdom done on 14ct white aida and is a Golden Bee kit.  I am stitching this for my grandson, and I have been working on it on and off for 10 years.  I am determined to have this piece done in the first quarter on 2012.  I believe that I am at least 75% done, so this should be doable.
 As you can see, I am really almost not started on this piece, but I did get it kitted up to start earlier this fall, just didn't get around to working on it.  It is the 6 Fat Men designed by Lizzie Kate.  I am going to be doing it in one piece on 16ct aida with the floss called for.  Can't remember the name of the color of fabric.  All these pictures look much yellower than the pieces are in real life?  This fabric is a very light wedgewood blue looking piece.

I think you will easily see as we go through the year that I am a major
 Lizzie*Kate fan and would love to do almost all of her designs.  This is the Christmas Spirit Series that I am stitching as one bellpull.  I got a good start on it last year, and then put it away for some reason and never got it back out.  Who knows why?   This fabric is a 14ct Antique White
 Besides being a fan of Lizzie*Kate, I am becoming a big fan of JBW.  I have stitched several of her ornaments, and I would like to do one of these a month during 2012.
This is a Design Works kit called Welcome Friends which I started probably 10 years ago.  I like what it says, and would love to greet people into my home with this pie
This last piece is a BAP that I would be amazed if I ever finished.  Don't get me wrong, I would love to finish it, I just am not sure that it is possible.  It is the Precious Moments Noah's Ark which has I think a gazillion (maybe 15) pages of charts, and I have never done anything this big.  It is on a very pale blue 14ct Aida, and will be huge when it is finished.  It came as a kit, and I would love to do this for my most favorite niece.

Well, this concludes my starting WIPocalypse list.  I hope to be able to check some of these off during 2012, and I know that I will be adding some onto this list as we go along.  Good luck to all of the other participants in this SAL, and thanks Measi for setting it up!   I have tried to set up a page just for the WIPocalypse, and have copied this post onto it, but I am not sure that I will continue with that page.  Seems like a duplication of effort to me.  It probably is just I don't know what I am doing.  Go figure - right?

See you next full moon!

Good luck with your WIPocalypse list! I stitched the JBW red stockings this year and was very happy with the results even though they haven't quite been finished off into ornaments yet.

Good luck with your list. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress :)

I'm looking forward to following your progress. I've never seen a Peaceable Kingdom with kids and animals before--that's a cute design!

Looks like you have your projects picked and ready to go for the 2012 WIPocalypse! I'm really looking forward to it, and hopefully will reduce my massive list of WIPs.
