Question working cross-stitch sideways?

I am progressing into more complex and larger cross-stitch projects. As I am trying to figure out which will work better for a particlar project, q-snap or scroll frame, and what sizes I'd need, I suddenly had an odd question come to mind.

Has anyone ever worked a cross-stitch project sideways because right way up wouldn't fit the size scroll frame they have? Or if you're a believer in making sure the warp direction of your fabric goes up and down, and the piece of fabric you have to work with can only fit the design on it with the warp going side to side?

It is a total coverage project 300 x 241 stitches being worked on 18ct Aida. I'll being working it a page at a time, and going to give needle parking a try. So, really I'll be focused on small groups of pixels. Why am I having trouble with wrapping my head around working with the pattern rotated 90 degrees?
