I think "My Stationery" is created and used by Windows Live Mail:

When I create a new message, and I choose to apply stationery (something I never do, btw), I get taken to the "My Stationery" folder from which I can choose a relevant style for my message.
I just tested for you. I deleted hte "My Stationery" folder and it contents, but it was re-create it when I opened Windows Live Mail again, albeit without any stationery files inside.
Generally what I do is just mark "My Stationery" as hidden, so that I don't see it when normally browsing Documents.
But it is safe to delete.
