What is this amazing thing? (brain teaser)

If you're smart enough to read blogs on the weekend, I figured I'd give you a real special treat here.

Can you tell me what the above is?

Is it...

a) a bow tie for a very large hamster

b) a rare specie of butterfly usually found in the Tambopata Candamo nature preserve in Peru

c) a deadly weapon usually thrown by ninja warriors, similar to shuriken used in the Edo period

d) the best new quilting invention since sliced bread, perhaps Marisa should post a tutorial on what this thing is all about

Hm....any smarty pants out there wanna take a guess?

I´d go for the shuriken! Due to the softer values today it has to be a lillte less deady. A hamster could also wear this...

Lynn said...

Oh you have piqued my interest! What is this fabulous quilting invention?

kathleen said...

c. a deadly weapon.

I'M afraid of it.

(a) ?

Well I'd do anything to be called a 'smarty pant', so here goes. My guess is either a or d. Since you clearly are on the verge of putting up a tut for this intriguingly mysterious object, I will go for d ;) Will love a tut! Take care, Una smarty pants
