I am Not a Perfectionist

I managed to stitch the Eterna Silk on my butterfly on Spring Splendor piece.  It is not perfect.  My silk is not laying flat.  But I did leave it.Why?  I could have ripped and restitched a million times and I still would not have gotten it smooth.  It did get better towards the end, but I was about ready to pitch the whole piece.  But I reminded myself that I like the long/short satin stitch (or used to in crewel) and there was some cool couching.  So once I find my beeswax I will couch the gold around the butterfly and start on the tulip again.  But I do need it quiet and I do need time.  Does anyone sell that?
