Should a woman make a shehechiyanu after the completion of the last letters of a sefer Torah she commissioned?

Since 1) women are obligated acc to many opinions in the Mivtzah and b) a common custom is for the owner to say shehechiyanu at completion (with a new fruit). So, for example, a woman who commissions a sefer in memory of, say, her late husband, and she is the owner, can / should she say shehechiyanu???

I've never seen it done, but why not?
