One aspect is pissing me off, no end.
The fact that you can't restart a quest. I am doing the Thalmor party thing and I didn't give my gear to the elf bloke to stash for you when you get inside, so I'm trying to kill about 300 guards with no armour or weaponry!
Not doing well
I did the exact same thing. I gave up after a few attempts and went back after I'd levelled up a lot more and knew a few more shouts.
My only advice is to sneak a lot, hide a lot, and save a lot. As soon as you kill someone, run away and hide in another room until you're back to full health, then save.
Also, if you can find any quests that involve retrieving a weapon for someone, find the weapon, but don't return it. Quest-related items won't be removed from your inventory when you give everything to that bitch.
I was lucky and had a quest-related staff which summoned a flame atronach. A lot of the time, I managed to hide and summon the atronach to do the dirty work.
It took me about 2 hours, but I did it eventually.
One more thing...When you first enter the embassy, in the room full of party guests, there's a knife on one of the tables.

Just try her room then, im sure it's in a chest there.
Nope. Your items only appear in the chest once you've completed the quest. Actually, once you give her your stuff, it's a cut scene that takes you to the Embassy, and there's no way out until you finish the quest.
