I had to chuckle about a a post by m3sca1 that his wife caught him in hand with a pendant he made late at night. I found myself in a similar predicament. I had almost completed a diamond shaped gem (my own design) late at night, and my wife saw the stone in full view. It was still in the quill of the faceting machine. Not much I could do to conceal it, especially when the wife is standing behind you.
