    Hi Sally,

    I found some conversions for you. I found them at, but to make it simple and easier to find for now here are the ones you asked about.

    DD to DMC
    71 (Heath) 340 (says no close match)
    105 (Mystic Pools) 333 (said no close match, but found answer at
    105 (Kirriilli [s-119]) 3835
    125 (Moonee Pools) (says no close match) However on close inspection of the colors in the twist it appears that Moonee Pools has DD's S-71, S-119, and S-139 along with DD S-120 Hyacinth (DMC 156) and DD S-104 True Blue (DMC 322)
    139 (Boulia) 3834
    158 (Mountain Mists) 156

    I hope this helps you. :)
