This beautiful book arrived in my mailbox yesterday and I began the first chapter last night. Christie Purifoy’s first book, Roots + Sky, was such a gift and came to me at just the right season in my life when we were in the early stages of looking to buy our first home, dreaming of a place to put down roots. Since then I’ve followed her on instagram (and more recently her podcast called Out of the Ordinary), enjoying the beauty she shares with the world. In Placemaker, Christie discusses what it means to co-create with God in the work specifically of cultivating beauty. I am always drawn to the theme of beauty–and I’m not talking about skin-deep beauty, but the breathtaking beauty of an arctic landscape, or the neat tidy stacks of laundry, or even the unlikely beauty of a somewhat disheveled home full to the brim with life and laughter. I’m also drawn to the theme of ‘home’ and the way our hearts long for it, hunger and search after it, and why that is. So I am eager to see what Christie has to share with us about these things. I am thrilled to be able to read her words again and to share this book with you! Yes, I will have a copy to giveaway to one of you readers very soon. 🙂
I’ve been working this week to wrap up a few smaller knitted projects, and in between I’ve been knitting on my cosmic remix shawl which feels like it’s knitting itself. It’s just quietly and unobtrusively coming together and I can’t wait to wrap up in it once it’s done. The yarn is so airy and soft. What are you reading and/or making lately?
