Texture wall or ceiling first?
 
I've got about a 2'x5' area on the ceiling that I've got to match a crowsfoot texture and about the same area on the wall that has orange peel that I've got to match and blend. Which area do I do first so I dont mess up the other?

I would stomp the ceiling first and let it dry completely then shield the wall when I did it. If anything gets past the shield it can be (lightly) wiped from the ceiling with a sponge.

What Bud said.

Stuff falls down. If bits & pieces fall off your wall (which they will) they won't fall on the finished ceiling.

Ceiling first as already mentioned you don't want ceiling mud falling back onto your finished walls. Other than that it does'nt matter.
