I looked a right mess........

I spent an hour and a half whipper snipping/grass trimming/edging on Wednesday morning and barely made a dint in our property.  We have a super duper professional trimmer that you can see here. I can only do a couple hours of trimming at a time as it kills my back and makes my hands vibrate for an hour or so after I finish.  Anyway whenever I do the trimming I end up covered in grass.  It ends up in my bra and my underwear, everywhere.  
As it was hot again on Wednesday I was only outside until just after 10am.  Did get some more grass cut as well.  I then decided to get a bit more done on the baby's quilt and got the quilt top put together.  I am also making a crib skirt and a valence for the window.  Plus a couple of cushions.
I ended up covered from head to foot in bit's from the minky fabric.  It's a messy fabric when cut.  The backing will also be minky and I think I will do the binding with one of the pink fabrics.

Minky is just so soft...but have heard about the mess when cut. The quilt is pretty, though....

And as for weedeating...at work we always kept one that had handles and a harness that fit across the back and a belt that it was ALL attached too...saved on the back. But I just barely was tall enough to use it..we had to adjust it as far as it would go because I am so short. See what I am talking about here as far as handles: HERE

Another thing, we also had one that was on wheels...you pushed it like a lawn mower. I really liked it, but we didn't use it long and I can remember why. Probably cause there was so much junk around the place that it was just as easy to use the regular weedeater
