Of Skirts and Shopping

Hi y’all,

Yesterday was a gorgeous, autumn day here in Kansas. We girls went to Kansas City for a little shopping trip. Our skirts are finished, so you can see a picture of them below.

We’re looking forward to the ladies’ neighborhood brunch tomorrow. While we were out, we picked up some paper goods for the autumn theme.

May we each delight in the Lord’s goodness. “Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” (Psalms 107:8)


The finished “products.” BTW – Anna’s purse was a birthday present.
Lunch out together.

Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee;
which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!”
Psalms 31:19

  1. Thank you Maxwell family for sharing your life with others through your blog. I truly enjoy and look forward to each new entry. I consider it such a blessing to have found your website and am encouraged every time I read your blog. May the Lord bless you for your investment in my life.

  2. Thank you for always looking so wholesome. It is an encouragement to our family, and I know it brings pleasure to our Lord.

  3. How lovely to have a girls day out. Love the new skirts. I’d love to have a courdoroy skirt. Looks warm in that brown color.
    I think it is so nice of you to have the neighborhood ladies over for lunch each year. I’ve been living in my current location now for two year and not one soul has introduced themselves to me. My daughter and her family just moved to Kansas and they had a HUGE welcome complete with cookie the day they moved in. I think I’ll move to Kansas :)). Have lots of fun ladies. Will be waiting for pics and an update.
    God Bless

  4. I echo Heidi’s sentiments. Also, it is so wonderful that you are hosting the ladies’ lunch. I wished you all lived here instead. 🙂

  5. Oh and the skirts came out wonderfully. Thank you for sharing a picture of the finished product.

  6. I am so glad you girls were able to get out of the house and have some girl time!! With everything ya’ll do, outings like that are treasured. The Vera Bradley bag is cute with Anna’s outfit. My daughter has one of the smaller crossover bags in different colors of pink, and I have a couple of the larger (defined as one can hide a body in it) bags because I cannot seem to leave the house without a bunch of stuff. One of these days, I will pare it down. Or, I will just become the bag lady. I love the cordurory skirt on Mary. I love the way cordurory drapes and holds it shape, and Mary did a good job sewing so that the material retains that quality.

    I hope you enjoy the ladies brunch!!

    In Christ,


  7. Cute skirts.I like the patterns you chose. We’re having a busy day. Can’t
    wait to see pictures of the brunch. Sometimes it’s nice to have a girls’ day out of shopping. This week we went resale shopping and found some nice outfits.

    Thanks for sharing the pics.

  8. Hi! How nice to have the luncheon! You are all such an encouragement, I can’t say that enough. I live in an area of the country where friendliness, is well, hard to find most of the time. Your blog always warms my heart. I love the skirts! I wish I could sew! Blessings to your family.

  10. My 14 yr. old granddaughter is very interested in my making a skirt she could exercise in. Do you have a pattern for a skort or culottes?
    I’m sorry but we don’t.
