MINI BABA YAGA
Cross Stitch Pattern
Turn your back to the forest, your front to me ~ Baba Yaga
In Russian folklore, Baba Yaga is portrayed as a hag who flies through the air in a mortar, using the pestle as a rudder and sweeping away the tracks behind her with a broom made of silver birch. She lives in a log cabin that moves around on a pair of chicken legs, that is surrounded by a palisade with a skull on each pole. The keyhole to her front door is a mouth filled with sharp teeth; the fence outside is made with human bones with skulls on top, often with one pole lacking its skull, leaving space for the hero or heroes. The hut does not reveal the door until it is told a magical phrase: “Turn your back to the forest, your front to me”.
Finished size on 14 ct aida is 3.79 inches wide by 3.43 inches high.
