The Glitter Village series consists of 9 designs. Each individual design has a stitch count of 57w x 57h. If the entire series is stitched together, as I show, it has a stitch count of 177w x 177h. This includes leaving 3 stitches between each of the blocks.
The fabric used for the models is Zweigart's 32 count Raw/Silver Linen. The designs also use the same threads throughout. If all of the designs are stitched, a total of this many skeins of floss will be needed: Classic Colorworks’ Bamboo (6), Four Leaf Clover (2), Blue Beadboard (1), Pink Posey (1), Lettuce Leaf (1), Cobbled Peach (1), Gingerbread (1) Brown Hen (1), Pebble Beach (1) and Cherry Tomato (1). One skein of Au Ver a Soie Metallic Braid in Light Gold is also used.
