I always wondered why they call the pillows for your bed that you don't actually sleep on "shams." Is it because they literally are shams? That is to say, not what they seem? They look so inviting, but you are not supposed to use them. Another, cuter name might have been nice. Sham really sounds kind of harsh.
"These are just for looks." The ones we actually prop on to watch TV are hiding under the yellow quilt. The ones we sleep on are under the pillow tuck of the bedspread.
"Do you know how hard it was to get this flanged part close enough to the presser foot to close the sham at all?"
"The things I do for you! That ruffler attachment broke my sewing machine."
"Think of all the money I just saved you by repairing the sewing machine myself. Oh -- and thanks a bunch for those new teeny-tiny little needle nose pliers -- they were just what I needed."
"Lounge on these puffy new pillows and you might get locked out of the bedroom!"
"Lean on these at your own risk!"
"Just think what you would have had to pay a workroom to do this!"
