I just opened the most wonderful package from my #fibreshare partner @firefly_yarns !!! So bright and colorful!! I absolutely love all the colors and that pattern is going right to the top of my to-do list!! Thank YOU SO MUCH @firefly_yarns <3

My last #melissamakesityellow post. I put this one off for a while because I didn't know how to end this month. I've enjoyed sharing my yellow adventures and meeting the many new people I have this month. But my fight isn't over just because #endometriosisawarenessmonth is, when I started feeling constant pain again in November I was ready for surgery number three and to just move on. I hoped for four more years pain free, and in that time maybe they'd find a cure. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. My ER trip in November showed multiple non cancerous tumors in my liver. These hepatic adenomas are caused by estrogen (specifically birth control) which was my main treatment for my #endometriosis . I was forced to stop the pills or risk a liver transplant. Within three months of stopping my birth control my pain increased, but my adenomas shrunk drastically. I'm in the clear for now, but will need to continue to have MRIs and see a hepatologist for the foreseeable future. .

But there are so many things that can keep us down, this won't break me. Us #endosisters will always stick together, through good and bad, through treatments successes and failures. Love to you all!! #endometriosisawareness #endometriosis #yellow #embroidery #dandelion ##nevergiveup #yellowflowers

#tbt #throwbackthursday to some #yellow architecture and art! With the exception of the broken #yellowbrickroad ('cause HELLO why not?) All of these were taken almost two years ago while I was in Denmark!

This month has flown by! I can't believe tomorrow is the last say of March and my #melissamakesityellow journey! There have been many days of harsh doctor realities this month, but hope too! Tomorrow I have an appointment with Reproductive Associates of Delaware with high hopes. Fingers crossed for good news! .

Today's #yellow has a dose of cute! This chunky cowl knit by me used the first skein of handspun yarn I've ever purchased!! Bright and airy and oh-so-warm pretty Polly is modeling for me! #handspun #handknit #yellowknit #cowl #melissamakesityellow #dogsofinstagram #endometriosisawarenessmonth #endosisters #endowarrior #endometriosis

I'm actually going into this week on a PAIN FREE Sunday!! I can't believe it! I cooked today, and worked on a few projects I've been putting off because it hurt too much to stand up, so I feel really accomplished today! Even knowing there's bad things happening in my body, I'm always going to keep fighting for as many pain free days as I can have!

This paper texture was made with shaving cream and food coloring! My #endowarrior writing was done pretty quickly and digitized to be used as an example in an upcoming #craftjamacademy class! #endosisters #endometriosisawarenessmonth #endometriosis #melissamakesityellow #handlettered #digitized #fauxmarbeled #yellow

#tbt to spring things from the past year! The yellow roses were from a simply beautiful #copenhagen summer day in the Kong's Garden! I know spring is on its way, but when it's 24 degrees out it's hard to remember that!

Yellow is such a bright and lovely color, it makes me smile to look through my older photos and see all the yellow, or pick up an in-progress project for the last few days of this #melissamakesityellow journey! Staying positive is the hardest part of chronic illness but it's proven that looking at the color yellow in the morning lifts your mood! #yellowflowers #yellow #endometriosisawarenessmonth #endosisters #endometriosis #butterfly #moth #march #springcomefaster

That strong #pingame flair!! In all seriousness I'm rather obsessed with these tiny bits of metal. They're fun to display on my #yellow banner that I made! Super simple #pindisplay with the makers tagged in the photo!

One of the most relaxing fiber crafts for me is weaving! These mini tapestries are so much fun, especially when you are adding in all sorts of fun texture and different yarn elements! .

I went for a sonogram yesterday and it was just bad news. It left me feeling really hopeless, when you're in pain, you just want answers, or even ideas for answers. I had two doctors just shake their heads at me and say my liver doctor is in the way of me taking hormones again. Sometimes you feel like the only people on your side are outside the medical profession. Ugh!
