Baba Yaga

On my mission to ruin my eyes once and for all I've taken on yet another delicate tiny project. I am building a model of Baba Yaga's house on fire (with moths escaping from the flames, naturally).
And in the spirit of silliness I've given it an obscenely long title:
Feverishly possessed by images of witch hunts they set aflame the cabin in the woods-misunderstanding that the threat was only metaphorical- and the blaze quickly spread travelling on the wings of fleeing moths. There were no survivors.
AKA Hey little bird, fly away home, your house is on fire, your children are alone.

Here it is, house frame and floor done plus two exterior walls (quilted) and two interior walls (paper). It's two inches high by six inches deep and six inches wide. I have yet to decide what to make the chicken legs from I do have some chicken feathers to add to it though.
