I have collected up a few of these from op shops etc over the years to use in my textile work but I always find I can't cut into them. This little flower reminds me of an embroidered table cloth (I still have) that my Mum maid while she sat with Pop in his dementia stages. No I didn't cut up her work but some other unknown embroiderer spent time making this set of doilies that are now in my to be used box. I felt really brave using this in the work
