Do both these projects involve the same client ? If your description of this silly person's behaviour and work was even half accurate ( not that I'm doubting it at all ) that's point to ridiculously incompetent senior management, for employing her in the first place, for continuing to employ her, for grossly over-paying her, an for failing to have her rigorously trained, if they have some weird reason for wanting to keep her on.
So, what's her secret ? Whose daughter / daughter-in-law / love child is she ?
Make sure you fully document all her failings and all the extra work she is causing you, and both keep copies and forward it to HR and management. Make sure these issues are fully discussed, and that management know that her incompetence seriously risks their own reputation and success.
But is it normal practice for you to take on extra work from her, simply because she says so ? Couldn't you have approached both the managers as soon as she mentioned this, to be sure they understand how her lack of skills has caused the problem, and asking them both to confirm that they do want you to risk your own work by doing hers, and that you will not be in any way blamed if her failures cause problems despite your efforts to rescue the situation ?
Even now, why cant you approach those managers and ask for their advice and assistance ?
