I've been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to show you the completed "Tribute to the Women of Jane Austen" shrug.
I added the surprise elements of butterflies and spiral fringe with a flower at the end. The butterflies denote the ever evolving awareness of Jane's heroines and their surprise and delight in the outcomes of their situations. The spirals indicate the twists and turns that the heroines take before they become totally aware of the true nature of those around them. They are then able to recognize the blossoming of a faithful relationship. It also gives that element of fun!
