Natural dye class

so--i taught a class at quest on natural dyeing. the results were not all that exciting unfortunately :-( this early in the spring i have no dye plants that get awesome results unfortunately. anyway...we tried some tree lichen, collected on the site, some heart wood that i got from Mebd of twin rose, and some gladiolas that i froze last fall...
i'm not sure what i'll do with the yarn but...here it is!

Wish I could have been in your class. I have never used dyes that I found on my farm. I do have walnut trees, so should probably find out how to use the nuts or husks, or whatever is used.
