Does this scarecrow still have his stuffing?

It is interesting what you find when sorting through fabric boxes.  I came across this appliqued piece.  My younger daughter started this - I dont know how long ago, but she was still at school, so it has to be more than 12 years ago, and probably more like 15, at a guess.  She did most of the blanket stitching before giving up.  I finished it off (by machine I might add), and that was it.  It is a wonder the poor old scarecrow still had any straw in him !!!  When I found him again, I decided to make him into a cushion.  I am not sure now whether the pattern was a wall hanging, cushion or what, but it doesnt matter - he makes a lovely cushion.
