yea, unfortunately that may stick around for a couple of days. I'm still feeling it from the Nereus plush from a few days ago, even though I gave myself a day between sewing projects. Thankfully, Aemaki's stud, the jellyfish, the dog pillow, and the hermit crab I did the last couple of days weren't so hard on my fingers.
Just keep icing them, maybe massage your finger pads a bit so fluid doesn't build up. Hopefully they'll get back to normal quickly. ^_^
