Stable refers to the energetic situation of a compound compared to substances it could be made from or to which it could change.

Feasible refers to the possibility of a specified chemical change being able to occur in terms of the universal entropy.

Not quite correct wording:

If something is thermodynamics let stable then it is at an entropy minima. A substance may be thermodynamics let stable.

A feasible process is one in which the entropy of any closed system considered increases. Only a process may be in feasible. Not all feasible processes occur, due to kinetic factors.

So the first is about a substance, the latter a process.
