Due to the restrictions imposed because of Covid-19, their effects on the lifestyle as much as on emotional states of the artist and the resulting retreat into the own four walls, two textile objects are created in autumn 2021 and in the winter of 2021 / 2022 – The Baby Blanket 2021, on the occasion of the birth of a child; then, in 2022 The House Cushion, fabricated of the same material and in the same knit pattern.
