I am in the wrong profession! (or why God invented calculators)

In real life, I'm an accountant. So I should be able to do math, right? I know that if I make one journal page a month for a year, that's 12 pages. However, when I made my square (that's right, square!) template for my BJP (remember, I'm leaving my pages all attached and creating one big project) I made it a 4x4 grid. I didn't multiply that in advance, I guess, because I would have gotten 16! I have 16 squares to bead, not 12! It took me over a week to discover this fact. :o)

I don't think I'll tell my clients this story! LOL!

LOL That sounds like something I would do.

That is too funny!

Being able to laugh at ones self is good for the soul - Do tell, are you going to bead all 16 or will you cut your fabric down to make 12 squares?

I will bead all 16 - I guess I'll just have to do an extra one each quarter!

Kassie, I'm also an accountant (or at least I play one at work) and I frequently make mathematical errors, sometimes embarassingly stupid ones. :)

Oh my you are brave, an extra page each quarter - but why not? LOL
