I've already made a couple of things for my partner.  When everyone was posting their manatee love, I forgot to post some fun little tidbits about me.  I grew up in Manatee County, just off of Manatee Ave.  I went to Manatee High School, and Manatee Community College.  It was also the home of Snooty the Manatee, who is, I beleive the oldest known manatee in captivity.  He will be 60 in July.  Here is his camera, although it wasn't working when I tried to view it.  http://www.southfloridamuseum.org/aquarium.asp

yay!  I'm so excited.  I've started already and I finished one thing.  Manatees are soo cute!  It's so easy to craft them.

However, is anyone else finding that the manatee body shape is hilarious?

My husband has seen a manatee at one of the US zoos, but I have never seen a Dugong or Manatee in the flesh. Dugongs are really hard to keep in captivity and I haven't had a chance to get to any areas where they are native. I am just starting on my first project. I'm in the Needlework Swap too and and going between my big item for that and the items for this will probably save me a lot of eye strain. Roll Eyes
