for a Christmas exchange I received the following supplies and book.
Masterpieces in Tatting by Ben Fikkert
I then tatted the pattern 40 tulips from the book, with the rainbow HDT perle 5 cotton. I had to add a contrasting green for some chains at the outside, and yellow for the tulip centres, so that I had enough thread to finish it.

This was a lovely pattern to tat and apart from the thread issue I could of tatted it in one pass, as I was doing with the centre.
This will be a present from my cousins daughter, I hope she likes it.
