Embroidery Love

This is one of a pair of old and slightly the worse for wear cushions currently living on our sofa.

 

I'm going to replace them with something a bit less tatty looking (I have lots of cushion-making projects planned for this year!) but I can't bear to be rid of these as I love the design so much.

 

Lots of the embroidery is damaged, so I'm thinking about maybe taking the cushions apart and trying to restore (ie re-do) parts of the stitching. Then I can perhaps use them as panels in new cushions or stretch them over canvas frames or something?

 

All thoughts and ideas welcome! :)
