What do I do first?

Yesterday on a whim I drove to Venice (FL) and went to a quilt shop I have wanted to go to since moving here. For some reason I thought it was really far away but it was only about a 45 minutes drive. Not too bad.
Anyway while I was at Deborah's Quilt Basket I noticed a bulletin board with items for sale. A lady who lived near the quilt shop had a gently used Koala quilt pro sewing cabinet for sale. I called and saw and will go pick it up tomorrow in my big red truck. I'm pretty excited!

Ray and I have been talking about moving my sewing room into the front bedroom since it is cooler. I have put it off since that would mean moving all of that stash I managed to get so neatly put away just a few short years ago. I think it will be a good thing though since now I can paint the room, hang the design wall and get everything exactly like I want it from the start instead of just trying to make everything go together. Over the short time we have been in this house I have rearranged the sewing room twice since I could never quite get it how I wanted it. Maybe this time will be better.
What to do...
- take down wallpaper border around closet.

- paint fuchsia pink wall

- empty closet and rearrange shelves
- remove furniture....maybe this should be at the top of the list?
- spot clean carpet...someone spilled and didn't clean up after themselves...which kid was that?

It sure sounds like no sewing for a while again...:(
Maybe I should sew today and just start fresh in the morning...I guess we will see what the day holds.

Oh Diane, I am so excited for you. It would be fun to help you if I lived closed. I love my sewing room but it is a total mess at the moment, and not from sewing. Have fun, on your new adventure!
