    Hello, My Name is Theodore J. Sportsman

    You can call me Teddy.

    Im here at Lake Winnipesaukee to get some relaxation and some yummy fish. As you can see, I am pretty successful, because I have a secret bait that really pulls them in. I fry them up for supper and then after that, I like to roast marshmallows, and look at the stars.

    Hello Teddy,
    If you think you will be fishing for a while, I may just see you in August. I know exactly where you hang out.
    You are surely a great sportsman and handsome too.

    Grammysharon - yes, I picked that fabric on purpose. I was hoping the canoe would look authentic.
    Jenniepenny - I just knew that someone from New Hampshire would answer. Teddy says he fishes there all the time (because he does not need a license). He would love to see you, and asks could you bring some extra marshmallows. He went through his already. lol.
    Ikahle - I think it was someone else who did the polar bear. Are you speaking of the swimming one?

    I had a lot of fun doing this one. It was a challenge coming up with some fish. I had bought lures from the store, but they left a mark on some paper so I did not want them touching the wall hanging. I got out some fabric with and cut out four of them. It came out wonderful.

    Such wonderful imagination, both in your quilt and your story telling. I just love the fish, they look so real.

    Hi, Theo great to meet you. A few more fish and you will be able to invite lots of friends for a fish fry. I'm sorry If I keep starring at you but I can't get over how much you resemble the hubby. (lol) must be that you both are well can we say well rounded and fish a lot. I can smell the fish cooking now. Great job!

    Canoes usually have a license number on. You could add the date or his name. Or maybe the cabin he is in. Great work!
